This week I started seeing a new sports chiro who works at the gym. Perfect location since I am there all the time, access to child care and he and my trainer can communicate to tailor my workouts. What did I find? Honestly nothing new, but my SI joints are nearly locked and pelvis/hips out of line causing pull on my hamstring at the insertion. So ART and adjustments it is again. I am one who does not believe in all the hype on adjustments fixing everything, I mean really crack my neck and my allergies are gone?? (too much medical bias) but am a believer in the sports side with muscle work and adjustments to fix misalignments in running.
And then check out these photos from last Saturday (Sometime after Mile 20), a little crooked right? Does anyone else look at race photos and critique your form?
|Finally a great race picture!|
So now the decision to make: To run a free marathon or not? I hope to do 50 States at some point and this would be a simple way to get SD crossed off, I have a place to stay and pretty much only ran 21 miles last week as the last 5 were filled with walking so can just start over. But is this a waste of a weekend, more frustration if I don't race well? What do I do? I am serious, I will take advice on this.
In the meantime as soon as this hamstring is healed I have a half marathon and plan to actually train for a 5K! Talk about out of my comfort zone. I think my trainer is thrilled with this since he loves sprinting and doesn't understand my crazy fascination with marathons and strong hatred of 5Ks! My goal is to break 20 minutes...
