Another week has passed with no running by either of us. While I am slowly getting stronger, the good news is my IT band is back to normal and the strength on my left side has improved. But now my right side is the one giving me trouble at the moment and certain things seem to aggravate it. A diagnosis of Bursitis in my left hip and a sore/tight Gluteus Medius. So my strength training took a decided turn yesterday as I worked solely on my upper body. Wow, I never realized what a weakling I was until Britt had me doing reps and I needed some rest breaks for some of the exercises! It was not pretty, but I did finish everything he threw at me.
My week was rather quiet as a bad cold hit our household, so getting organized for our upcoming vacation kept me busy as I stayed close to home. Our pet sitter is ready to come enjoy snuggle time with our little pup while we hit the beaches of the Caribbean but Lulu has other ideas!
