Hip Problem

November 4, 2009 at 6:52 pm | Posted in Marathon training, Richmond Marathon | 3 Comments

Of all the rotten luck!  I’m 10 days from my marathon and I’m hurting like crazy!  My right hip is sore from the front (hip flexor area) right around to the back (glutes).  What do I do? 

I ran 7 miles last night and felt terrible going uphill.  Maybe I should hit the pool and spin class.  Maybe I should just run on my treadmill.  Maybe I should forget my marathon.  WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Two Weeks Before Race Day

Actually, 13 days before the Richmond Marathon!  Here’s what I ran this week so far.  Some say it’s too much, some say not enough.  Since I’ve never been good at tapering, I really don’t know.  What do you think?

Tuesday – 10.6 miles

Wednesday – 6.o miles, pace run

Friday – 8.6 miles easy

Saturday – 6 miles, including 400m repeats

Sunday – (will run) 15 miles

Weekly Total:  46.1
