No time for the elliptical today.  Some core exercises and then called it a day.

The weather was to perfect here in Logan today so I decided to try a little run outside.  I ran 4.5 miles and it felt pretty decent.  My legs were a little sluggish from not running for a while but overall I was pleased.  Katey's family says I look "healthy" now.  I have put a little weight back on over the holidays and that is their way of letting me know I have got some more meat on my bones.  It will come back off once I get running again.

An easy 2.25 miles again in Logan.  My hamstring is feeling much better but my adductor muscle is slightly strained I think.  This injury is driving me crazy.

Not exactly the way I wanted to start the new year.  Katey and I drove home from Logan today.  I stretched, did some core exercises, and then sat in my parent's hot tub.

Lots of errands around town today.  I went to a chiropractor today and I'm not sure if it helped much.  I go and see April tomorrow for a massage and then have an appointment with the physical therapist on Monday.  I am going crazy not being able to run without any significant pain.  I need to be patient I guess.  I guess my body could use the rest.

.5 mile with the dog and then tacked on another 2 miles around Ivins.  Adductor was still really tight. 

I went and saw April today and she dug into my adductor muscle for close to an hour.  She thinks I should get better soon and back to running.  Suprisingly I feel much better than I have in a while.  She told me my adductor muscle was really tight and all cramped up because it was compensating for my hamstring pull from last year.  She checked my hamstring out and it felt really good.  She said the adductor was going to get tight just because my body is trying to realign itself.  I hope it gets better so I get out for just a nice easy run with no pain.
