They See Me Rollin'

Well, more money spent last night on a new pair of Brooks as well as a foam roller.  I'm kind of freaking out because I'm still in significant pain after Sunday's run.  I didn't run last night and still feel like I can't/shouldn't tonight.  I try to avoid using the word "can't" when it comes to exercising, but I don't want to make it worse when the race is so close. 

The foam roller will help open up my hips and let me tell you, that sh*t HURTS, but felt good afterwards.

The pain goes from my hip (as I take a step) and twists down to my inner thigh/knee.  The doctor I'm going to tomorrow, I've never been to, so hopefully he can help.  It's only 10 days away!!!  I'm staying as positive as possible.

I'm glad I got the new shoes though...huge difference and maybe that will help with the hip issues.  The "old" shoes aren't even that old (6 months) but apparently in the runner's world, that's ancient.  So, they're retired and I can use them in the garden or something.

On another note, I'm glad to see that the weather here in Northern NJ will be nice, warm & sunny for at least the next week!  I'm hoping to plant my front pots and do some other things in the yard.  We are hoping to do a large vegetable garden this year so I'm excited for that as well as the local farmer's market opening in a few weeks - love that on Sundays!

Do you like yard work/gardening or find it to be more of a chore?


  1. I run too and haven't ever done that roller thing but maybe I need to? Nothing feels better than new shoes, right? PS - see my spill I just took from running earlier this week. UGH.

    1. It hurts like HELL but I'm hoping it works. I'm off to the dr. this afternoon to see what's up with this pain I'm having. Ugh!
