I went to a physical therapist in town today and I hope he can get my hamstring/adductor taken care of.  He noticed that everything was a little tight but no major tears or anything which was positive news.  He gave me some suggestions on weightlifting I should do for the next little while.  He also wants me to get Coreshorts Lite (compression shorts) just to walk around in and then possibly to run in for short runs. 

He was really encouraging and I hope to get this thing taken care of.  I should have seen a physical therapist a while back but I was too stubborn.  This is all foreign territory to me not being able to run without pain and trying to heal my leg.  I guess I am supposed to learn something from this so I will be patient.  I am just hoping to be going for a nice run here sometime soon with no pain whatsoever.

Rode the bike, did the elliptical, and lifted weights at the high school.  I did some stretching afterwards and core exercises.

I rode my bike from Ivins over to the Dixie Center.  Met up with the guys while they ran.  Clyde and I rode our bikes and just cold progressively colder and colder.  It was fun being around everyone again but not very fun getting cold.  I hit close to 20 miles for the total bike ride. 

I see the physical therapist on Monday and I hope I can get running again soon.  The hamstring and adductor have felt good the last couple days.  I know lifting weights has helped.  I will incorporate that more within my training once I get going again.
