Sunday was supposed to be a 12 mile run, but my hip/ back/ pelvis area was really bugging me after my 50K (so much so that I couldn't get comfortable when I was sleeping and got all of about 40 minutes of rest, so decided to scrap my run and make it a rest day). I really dislike not following my plan to a T, but I have to remind myself that listening to my body is more important (and the plan is more of a guide, not the law). My midweek runs turned into walks to give my body extra time to recover. Let me tell you, I had to wake up earlier for my walks than my runs seeing as it takes so much longer... but in the end it's worth it to listen to your body, right?! On Friday I was able to see a sports medicine doctor so he could look everything over and make sure I was okay to continue training. He checked my range of motion, took x-rays to make sure it wasn't a stress fracture, etc and gave me the thumbs up. With that being said, I decided to go for my 10-miler on Saturday. I'll be honest, the area that was giving me trouble was still painful, but I pushed through anyway (because at this point I'm not sure if that feeling is just something I'm going to have to live with or what). I'm going to try and get in to see a physical therapist next week to see if maybe it's a muscle issue that needs to be addressed, so wish me luck!

How were your workouts this past week?
