To the doctor I go...

I went to see the Sports Doc today. She pulled, stretched, pushed, x-rayed, and did everything to find out what the deal was. Well, everything looks normal except my right leg is about 1/2" shorter than my left because my pelvis is a little crooked. She gave me some exercises to do to put it back in place.

She gave me the OK to keep running, but I have to do a whole walk/run thing. If it keeps hurting while running I'll have to do some cross training. She also said I need to do some strength work with my core and hips. My x-rays came out perfect, my spine's good, my hips are good, my bones are good.

When I got home we took the kids to the playground and J and I did 2 miles in laps around the playground. Well, I felt great while running/walking, but now that I'm home it's hurting. LAME....And now it's the same kind of pain, but it's not shooting pain down my leg, it's pain on the outside of my knee. It's like if I could pop my knee like my knuckles it would make it all better.

I just gotta stick to the exercises they gave me and I've gotta suck it up and do the whole walk/run thing. :)

Oooh, I found my running outfit for Saturday! Isn't it cute?
I LOVE it!
 Let's just hope my leg is back to normal by Saturday so I can wear it.

Tomorrow I'm thinking I'll do an hour on the bike or something and skip my running miles. I dunno...maybe I'll walk/run...we'll see.

I LOVE the plaid skirts from running skirts! I have been drooling over them.

I am glad that you were able to see the Sports Med Drs that everything is mostly ok! Good luck.

super cute outfit! Hope your leg feels better soon! I have been really enjoying P90x. Never thought I would dig a work out DVD but lo and behold I am getting stronger! I find that my form stays strong even at the end of a run when I am tired.
Good luck!

Love the plaid skirt! I have the pink one. I hope you can figure out what's causing you pain. I was going to suggest talking to TMB because she had something similar, but I see she already commented. :)
