But Saturday morning I woke up to warm, humid breezes, an overcast sky, and a park begging me to run through it.
|Selfie attempt abandoned after one mis-timed shot because|
the garbage men came up the street and I felt silly. And yes!
Our road, although not paved yet, is clear enough for the
garbage truck to get down it!
I got to the park, walked the 2-mile loop, did some form drills, then repeated my walk-run on the way back.
Report: I felt pretty good. I could definitely feel work done on that hip, but no pain. Range of motion while running felt equal. After I got home, I had some hip snapping on the right. My psoas tendon is probably inflamed and irritated; this can continue post-surgery for awhile because the tendon and muscle catch on the enlarged/scarred joint area. Once the surgical area returns to normal, this lessens and hopefully goes away.
Something I didn't expect was the rib pain while running! It was pretty terrible! But I was only going a block, so I dealt with it; and after I got back, my ribs actually felt a little better. A little motion is probably good for them. If they don't heal up, however, I will not be running in 2 weeks: it hurts too much right now for more than a block at a time.
