When I got home from work on Friday night I was determined to get a longish length run in because it had been such a long time. Even though I knew I was going to have to do it on the treadmill, I figured I could shoot for around 8 miles.
Unfortunately that nagging hip pain came back and every mile and a half or so I had to stop to stretch out my hip and IT band area. Around mile 5 I could feel my form was starting to get really bad so I stopped and stretched one more time and ended the run at six miles.
I started looking into places around me that offer active release. I’ve heard good things about it and I’m wondering if at this point that would do more for me than just a massage. Thoughts?
In other weekend news, the BF and I went to visit his sister at her new place. She’s a horse trainer and started at a new barn a few months ago. I haven’t been around horses since I was a small child and then it was only like once. So here are some pictures I’m sure you will all find highly amusing.
