Ran six after seeing the Chiro this morning. I haven't been able to run since Thursday as my hips and sacrum were rotated. Very painful and tends to mess up the muscles in my back and my left leg. So I got the chiro to straighten everything out and retrieved my insoles (hip levelers they call them) from him. He's supposed to be getting them remade as we are sure they are causing my lower leg problem. I haven't worn them for a month. The lower leg problem is much better but the hips are now off. They solved one major problem and created another. So now I have to find out how to fix both...

Ran 1 mile on the treadmill, then swam for a 1/2 hour. Ran 4.5 outside with Bubbles. I decided to get back into swimming some to help my leg and hip issues. I really ran strong a couple years ago when I was swimming a couple of days a week. Interesting that I have no stamina swimming but still have my speed. I clocked a 100 at sub 1:30 at the end of the work out, and it was as fast as I have ever been. Granted I learned to swim about 4 years ago so it is not that fast.

Been traveling and my back has been hurting. I've done some cross training. Trying to slowly come back.

Still slowly coming back. Pain in my back is better and tolerable. Each run I run the second mile a minute faster than the first then just run what feels good for the rest of the run.

Yea! I ran well this morning. It felt great. BUT, I did have to ice my back off and on all morning this morning. I gradually deep cleaning every room in my house. I also washed a bunch of windows today. I think more about 2/3 of the windows in my house. I got a new, natural cleaner. It is amazing how easy it is to wash windows when you have a great cleaning solution. It went unbelievably fast!
