Last week it was my hip that was bothering me. Well, after a wonderful massage session where Rachel stretched out all my hip muscles (she said I was very tight), my hip hardly hurts at all. Now, because of what I diagnose as "not enough rest time between runs", I am having knee pain.
I have iced, motrined, and elevated - but still is a little tender. I will see what the easy 2 miler feels like tomorrow morning. When my hip was hurting - I was debating with myself about dropping back and only doing the half marathon in 3 weeks. Now - it is probably even more likely. It is hurting just to walk right now.
Christmas morning was spent at my daughter Jennifer's house. Her husband and 2 children were there as well as son Scott, his girlfriend, and extended family members. We did the traditional present opening followed by big breakfast. Only one other Christmas, when Steve was deployed during Desert Storm, were we not all together. This Christmas was hard not having him with us.
