Sunday: 2 miles walk, 2 hours bike, a little core strength, lots of whining. Tinman says to stop training and bag the marathon.
Monday: 1 hard hour on the bike, some core, assessment/adjustment (SI joint, I guess) courtesy of the chiropractor I work for. Some pain in the morning, fades as the day progresses. Biking has no effect on pain level.
Tuesday: nothing but a tiny bit of core/stretching, per my husband's request. Some pain in the morning, fades a bunch during the day. Tempted to take a brisk walk but I promised not to do any exercise for one day.
This morning: 20min walk run (increasing running), 20min run, 20 min walk/run (decreasing running). Some pain this morning, faded as I warmed up. Running felt better than walking (less thigh pain) but caused the hip to tighten some.
Now: 10 minutes after "running" the pain is completely gone, voila. I feel relatively fine. Of course, I have fresh legs from not running for 3 days, and we had great weather this morning, and there's that omg-I'm-actually-running-again-and-maybe-don't-have-a-sfx-after-all thing going on too. I wonder how long this will last.
I am tempted to try the walk/run thing again this afternoon, but part of me thinks I should wait until tomorrow. Likewise, I'm not making any decision yet regarding the marathon.
