losing steam!

I'm thoroughly miffed. I don't even know where to begin. Well, for starters, I feel like crap. My hip still hurts, the injection site hurts on and off, and I'm feeling a whole new pain in my hip flexor area. The thing is, I HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN DOING ANYTHING for the last 7 days. My lower back is hurting, and my ITB feels super tight. Even sitting in my desk chair hurts right now. Yes, I'm whining!!! I think this lack of activity is messing with my head and making everything eleventy billion times worse. I'm definitely going to spinning class tonight.

In the latest chapter of my running injury saga, I got hooked up with some custom foot orthotics today. My PT was able to sneak me in during the guy's lunch break, avoiding the usual 5-8 week wait for an appointment. Nice. If only my PT would have warned me that I would be parading around the office in spandex shorts and a dinky camisole all bunched up so they could check out my "rib and hip alignmnent". Sheesh!! If the orthotics work, my IT band issues could have more to do with the way my foot strikes the ground than my leg length discrepancy. I'm still holding out a little hope that all of these different treatments will add up to some relief for me. Until then, I've been prescribed another month of PT!!!! Oh, the humanity.
