Update

Miracles of miracles. The hip is doing better. Unbelievably, it was the bike that healed it. I could barely walk Monday and Tuesday. It even hurt to swim. Finally got on the trainer Wed. night and when I got off, I was HEALED!!! Of course, it was probably because my Drs appt was the next day. He thinks it may have been some sort of muscle spasm/pinched nerve thing. So, I get to do a kind of ART on it (ouch!) and bike a lot (yea!). But, amazingly, it feels better and better each day (fingers crossed). I even jogged to the car (1/4 mile) yesterday and had NO PAIN!!! I think I can, I think I can......

Marathon (next weekend)....here I come...

Being forced to stop running due to stress fractures has gotten me 'close' to my other best friend, my bike and I'm so thankful to get to know him so well again!
Congrats on the hip and good luck with the marathon!

Glad to hear your hip is doing better! At least doing some form of training is helping it and you haven't been completely sidelined. Good luck training!
