I’m Still Here

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me! But don’t worry, I AM still here. I’ve just been pretty busy at work and, well, living life. And truthfully, without running and the fact that my workouts are all pretty boring, I don’t have a whole lot to write about.

That being said, I did go to my first PT session yesterday morning. And I’m still feeling it! Turns out the spot on my left leg near the hip that my Sports Doc thought might be a pinched nerve is the inflamed IT Band! I hadn’t even thought at all that it could be connected to the ITB as my knee doesn’t hurt at all, but when my PT pushed around the spot I almost screamed. She worked it out a bit and used the ultrasound machine. It’s been aching (the good kind of ache) ever since. She also worked out the other spot that’s been aching a bit. Of course, as all PT’s do, she showed me a series of stretches and exercises for homework. This first session was pretty passive on my part, but I have a feeling it won’t be much longer. I go back Thursday after work (which should be better than the 7am of yesterday morning) and then twice a week for 4 – 6 more weeks. Thankfully my PT is also a runner, having run two marathons this year including NYC.

Okay, a little promotion here – either Wednesday or Thursday (depending on how awesome our company holiday party is tonight) I’ll be posting what I think is a pretty awesome giveaway. Among other items, the prize pack will include products from Banana Blossom Press, Sprigs, and Nathan. So, check back soon!

  • What have you been up to while I’ve been silent?
  • Are you done with your holiday shopping (I haven’t started yet!)?
  • Are you participating in any charity drives or gifting this year?

You are headed in the right direction! That's all good news.

I am pretty much done shopping for the kids, at least, but lots of others to do. Did I mention I hate holiday shopping? ; )

I'm glad your first PT appointment was a success. That's great news! I remember when I was out form working out for just about 2 weeks, and that was tough enough.....so kudos to oyu for keeping such a positive attitude.

I am almost done with Christmas shopping...so close!! I'm working ahead this year to give myself plenty of time to bake!
