I wanted to call this post "My Dumb Bum" but I thought it might attract the wrong sort of attention. It's depressing and discouraging just how painful my hip and SI joint still feel. I just came back from another visit to Dr. Wade and he drilled his elbow into my butt cheek again, this time finding a new and even more painful spot. It's been three weeks since I began treatment and nearly a month since I did any running. I'm beginning to have some grave concerns about being able to do Harry's Spring Run-off. I know it's still four weeks away but without any further training it's going to be a very tough run - if I can participate at all. I've had set-backs before (think: knees) but somehow this one seems the most discouraging. I just need to remain positive. I will get better.
