Houston, we have a hip problem.
My first 5K is this weekend. YEA!! Totally psyched about it and all that...buuuuttt...my hip hates every part of me. It hates when I walk, and it most certainly hates when I run. I think. We haven't really gotten that far yet.
Apparently, Superman was correct in his statement that I run funny. I did run funny yesterday. It was due to exhaustion and a need to visit the little ladies' room but not wanting to mess with my pace. Then it was probably not helped with the 7-hour car ride to Super Duper University and back (3.5 there, 3.5 back).
Today I need to run two miles. It says so on the schedule. Yes, I could alter the schedule, I assume, and use today as my freebie day. I suppose I should. But Thursday (my official No Exercise Day, according to the schedule) is the day that The Office and Fringe return. I kind of want to get prepared for that. Is it bad that I just want to down a few Excedrin Back and Body pills to get past this so I can run two miles today? And, seriously, two miles at this point is a breeze. Not as easy breezy as one mile, of course (or no miles), but it is not bad.
(My mom at this moment is dialing my number to tell me to take it easy.)
Why does this have to happen THIS week??!!!
