I was supposed to do 8 but I ended up doing 7.42 and felt good about it. My pace is getting quicker and my longer runs are getting... dare I say, easier.
Sunday night I felt like shit because I have been eating shit and not hydrating.
I laid on the couch for a good portion of the night only to get up to move to the bed.
Monday I woke up and I had this little pain in my butt.
Like where my tailbone is, kinda at the top of my ass crack.
It wasn't too bad, but since then it's been getting progressively worse. It's not unbearable but it's super annoying. Anytime I laugh (or fart) or adjust how I'm sitting it feel like someone is kicking me in the butt.
I honestly didn't think anything about it, and I just casually mentioned it to my trainer. We both looked it up and turns out it's an actual running injury caused by running on uneven ground.. aka New England roads.
It's called a strained coccyx.
Turns out the cure is Yoga... go figure.
My trainer found this awesome yoga video on Youtube for runners and it's a nice long one without the whole
"You're walking through a forest, look for the golden glowing light, breath in the light"
I personally can not stand that kind of yoga. I'll post the video here so you can give it a go.
Have you ever had an embarrassing injury?? Tell me about it while I sit here icing my bum.
