Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 4.5 elliptical miles.  After 5 days off, hips are still disappointingly sore.  Will schedule doctor's appt today.  I'm fearing my chances of running Rocky Raccoon are diminishing with each week I don't run but don't seem to get better.

Doctor report- he said to keep my ticket to Texas.  Doesn't look like any injury to the actual hip joint, and not bursitis.  Looks like general overuse at the muscle/ligament insertion points, made worse by very weak hip abductor/adductor muscles.  NSAID's plus physical therapy, and lots of cross training (bike, elliptical, maybe some underwater treadmill at USU facility) should have me ok to run my race next month.  Encouraging news, though still lots of work and luck needed to be able to run the race.  But generally about as positive of news as I could have expected.

PM- 5 cross training miles.  Hip hurt more on the bike than the elliptical.  I'm spending 90 minutes per day doing hip exercises (45 min twice a day), which really cuts into any time to cross train.

PM- 13 miles on the bike and elliptical.  No hip pain, but my bum sure is sore from all the time in the saddle that it's not used to.

PM- workout while watching the Jets-Bengals playoff game.  I think I did about the equivalent of 9 miles elliptical, 10 miles biking, and I did 1 treadmill mile just for kicks and giggles.  If you gotta work out inside, watching NFL playoffs is about the best way to do it.
