It was very disappointing not to run the Half marathon. I had trained hard for it. But I know in the bigger scheme of things, it was just one race. I've been through 4 weeks of PT, and I was told I would need 2 more weeks. I was allowed to run a mile last week, and was given the green light to run this weekend to work on my gait. It has been brought to my attention that I swing my left leg out (think kickball). I'm having a hard time forcing myself to swing my leg through. It seems to take a lot more effort than the way I used to run. I ran two miles today and did 30 minutes on the EFX. I was a little sore from my 1 mile run yesterday and 30 minutes on the EFX. I'm feeling the hip a little more today. I've iced it several times and will probably ice it once more tonight.
I'm setting my next goal for Oct. 10th. I am hoping to be able to run a 5K. There was one today that I wanted to run, but my better judgment took over. I didn't run it. I'm focusing on October 10th.
I'm still not 100% sure what caused the injury. I imagine it was a combination of things. My hope is that I will heal and come back stronger than before.

My son will play outside at any time and in any weather. When he was little, my family couldn't believe that we played outside all year. I heard "Isn't it too cold to be outside?" You have to remember that our families live in Mississippi and Texas. And although it does get cold there, most days it warms up during the day, and then repeats the process the following day.
Pennsylvania weather was an adjustment for me in that some days it just doesn't feel like it warms up very much in the winter. But that being said, it doesn't stop us from getting outside. And honestly it shouldn't stop you either as long as the temperature isn't dangerously low.
We dress in layers. We wear hats and gloves when we need them. We keep moving. I try to find activities that will keep us active and moving while we are outside.
Sometimes, you just want to eat something with a crunch. And for me, a sweet crunch is even better. I was given the opportunity to try Natural Sins
And I would love to show you a picture of what the pineapple ones look like, but Lil Man ate them all. YES, I mean he ate 2 bags before I could even snap one picture. He liked them that much. I did get to try them, but he ate the majority of them.
I think this is an awesome idea, and I can't wait to get one. This looks like multi-tasking at its finest. I'm talking about The Convertible HDL by PRracer.
What it is? It's a skull cap / headband combo that is equipped to hold a device like a headlamp or a camera. The Convertible HDL is designed with the latest technology. Not only does it light your way, but it has a camera to capture your run.
