Ran around the high school this afternoon.  It was not the best of runs.  My adductor was tight the entire time.  I am at my wits end right now.  I am trying to be positive through all of this but it is really difficult.  I go and see the chiropractor about Graston Therapy on Wednesday.

I lifted weights and did the elliptical for a little bit.  Leg is still fairly sore.

I went and saw Dr. Petersen today about Graston Therapy or "scraping."  He did a mini session and stretched me out really good.  It seemed to help a little bit but I wanted him to scrape deeper.  He said he will work on it more during our next session on Friday.

 I hope this helps.

Rode the bike and did the elliptical for close to an hour.

I went and saw the chiropractor and he did more of the scraping.  It felt pretty good and it actually felt like my leg was loosening up.  I go and see him again on Monday.  I hope things are turning around for the better.

Way to much yard work for Valentine's Day.  Oh well!  I got a lot done around the house.  I will do the scraping again on Monday and see if I can slowly get back into running again.
