So I have mentioned that I was having piriformis issues, went to acupuncture, and was hopefully on the road to healing!
At my last acupuncture appointment I kind of decided that, while it could still be good for some things, I was going to go a more traditional route for my pain. And, for me, “more traditional” tends to mean “ignore it til it gets better and/or goes away”. When that doesn’t work I ask a doctor.
When it was almost time to head home from my Thanksgiving trip, I was very excited that I was probably going to actually be able to run in my planned 5K that upcoming weekend!
Then I decided to bake some cinnamon rolls for my dad. Innocent enough right? Well…that is until I went to get the beautiful Kitchen-Aid mixer out of the cabinet. Apparently I forgot to “lift with the legs” and felt the muscle pull all the way down my leg. Which pretty much put me right back where I had been 2 weeks before.
Luckily, I had an appointment scheduled with my new doctor – but not before a pre-planned trip to NYC to meet up with friends and wander. The wandering was kind of painful, but it probably helped out in the long run. And when I talk to the doctor this week, hopefully she will be able to help me out – or point me in the right direction!
So I haven’t run in a very long time. Haven’t done much of anything really — and Christmas is almost here and there is baking to be done and lights to be hung and a tree to be decorated….therefore I am much frustrated.
But, most importantly, the cinnamon rolls were DELICIOUS!!!
