Remember that weird hip pain I had way back at the beginning of the year?
It never went away.
After all this time slacking off on running, you would think the one good thing is that my mysterious hip pain would heal, my plantar fasciitis would be ok, but meanwhile, my foot kills me at least once a week (ok, ok, my fault in not keeping up with all the exercises I should be doing and the ultrasound), but the hip pain? It goes away and it’s back as soon as I attempt any running. Not during the run, but a few minutes/hours after I finish.
Yesterday I had a pretty failed run on the treadmill (LOTS of walking. I can’t help it, the treadmill is still boring…). Cath called me up to join her for a run at our gym downstairs, which was perfect to get me out. I ran badly, walked a lot, and today my hip is SCREAMING in pain. Even though I probably only had about 10 to 15 minutes of real running.
I should take advantage of the cheap medical services here in Manila, but who wants to go to the doctor when it’s so pretty outside?
Fine, fine, anyone reading this from Manila can recommend a good orthopedist?
