|Did this instead of training. I'm not even mad.|
Ten weeks into training, and only 7 more weeks til the STWM Half Marathon! My hip problems caused me to have a very slow August, but I've made some great progress with my chiropractor and have started seeing a physiotherapist as well, so I'm hoping September will be good to me.
Here's what I got up to this week:
Saturday: Had an initial assessment with a physiotherapist at the same clinic I got to for chiropractic. We're going to work on deep core strength and deep glute strength, which will hopefully help be become a better runner while at the same time keeping any injuries at bay. After physio I went on a slow run to test the waters and then did some stretching with 9 Way to Stretch Your Hip Flexors. [6.2 km | 40:08 | 6:28/km]
Sunday: 18 Moves to Tone Your Butt, Thighs, and Legs. This went hand-in-hand with a lot of the work my chiropractor and physiotherapist are having me do, and man oh man was I ever aware of my glute medius afterwards.
