Vision Lost

This is not how I envisioned my training after Meagan's Olympic Trials performance. I had hoped to start running my own workouts eared to running a spring marathon. There was even talk about getting an entry into the Boston Marathon, but all of that has been put on pause. I had been having some slight discomfort in my low right side of my back, hip, groin during the last couple of runs with Meagan leading up to the Trials. In Houston, the pain wasn't getting any better, so I opted to take Saturday (the only running I did was to cheer on the runners) and Sunday off. Fast forward to today and I'm still having the same discomfort whenever I land on my right side.

I'm pretty convinced it's my SI joint and I'll find out more this Saturday when I go to see a chiropractor. I have run a bit which I'll update soon.

Since I'm not really running, check out a few recent articles about work:

I didn't attend Project NY, but it's a big shoe and fashion trade show. My sense is that people way cooler that you or me browse mostly underground brands looking for the next biggest urban trends.

I don't really work on the Karhu Originals side of the business, but I wear the shoes all the time. There is something about the brand's unique history that I like. Wearing brightly colored mesh upper shoes also gets a big boring as I spend enough time in running shoes. When I visit accounts or hang out with my friends, I prefer to wear Karhu Originals. (Yes, that was a Dos XX reference).

Jordan, if the chiro can't work things out try to find a PT who is familiar with Muscle Energy Technique (MET). I've had my SIJ "go out" a couple of times in the last two years, and one session of MET work sets things back to normal. I feel better as soon as I hop off of the table... we're talking going from 0 miles and severe pain with each step to 40-50 miles the next week with little to no pain.

I absolutely agree with the above. My SI joint was "jammed" after my car accident and I couldn't run seriously for a year--but through MET with a great physical therapist, I was able to get back training. I actualy found chiropractic work to bother my condition, but everyone's different. Keeping my fingers crossed.
