Hip Hop

Whoa! I just looked at the time and realized that my day is flying by and I haven’t really gotten a lot accomplished yet! I hate it when that happens.

My hip was still hurting when I woke up so I used some more of the pain relief rub. I think I will be reapplying it again because the ache is coming back. I have been doing some gentle stretches too to attempt to work it out and I think I may try some ice next.

I don’t think it is a big problem, but I want to make sure that I tend to it properly right away. I have two important events – my dragon boating regatta and 10K race – coming up that I can’t afford to miss. I was going to go for a run today, but I will have to skip it if my hip isn’t feeling better by this evening…


  1. What a wonderful journey you've been on!!
    I'm just starting out right now (Again!) and loving your story and great photos!!
    I'm blogging here:
    rather than on blogger, but hope you'll join me from time to time!

    I love it when people take the time to post food journals! It's great to get ideas from others - trying to think of what to take for lunch at work is the worst for me!

  2. Oh! Hope the hip gets better sooner! Take care :)

  3. Ow! Can you go get adjusted? Do you have a chiropractor? My right hip always gets a bit out of tend to gravitate toward being 1/2 inch to 1 inch higher than my left. Chiro can fix it, tho....and it always feels much better.

  4. Thanks! I use to have a touch of bursitis in my hips years ago when I put on a lot of my weight, but it generally hasn't bothered me much over the years. I think the last long jog did me in a bit, so I took the night off from that! I promise I will look to a professional for help if the problem persists though.
