....age is rearing its ugly head. 15 days ago I was running 23 miles and felt some discomfort in the back of my right thigh. I finished up and the next day felt like I had pulled a muscle in my groin and or hamstring. I could barely walk. It's been strange as there are good days and bad for the pain, the discomfort moves around somewhat, yet nothing I really do can make it painful. I can stretch in any which way - hams, quads, IT band, and nothing bugs it. Yet climbing a ladder or running makes it tighten up. I went to the doctor today and he said he doesn't know what it is so recommended a sports doctor or sports physiotherapy. I'm going to see Colin McKay, my ART dude, on Wednesday as he usually knows this stuff or will direct me to someone who does.
Bottom line I won't be doing the Dirty Duo 25k in two weeks and Chuckanut is very much in doubt. I was feeling so awesome up until two weeks ago it's pretty disappointing. I was even thinking the marathon was going to come together but missing all the workouts has probably written that off as well. Not much I can do, there always seems to be one thing or the other. I have to think long term now.
