I think I need some. I seem to have hit a blogging dry spell. It's not that I don't have lots to write about, I just got a bit waylaid, and then didn't know where to pick up and get going again, and it just seemed easier to let things slide.
I saw this story on the news last night. (sorry, you have to watch a commercial first)
Talk about inspiring. Or maybe it's kind of depressing, comparing this active, gung-ho, fit, 93 year old to how I feel myself. Remember all that running I did, training for the Sun Run. Haven't done a run since. And that is not because I didn't want to. I had some trouble with my hip and knee a few days before the run. The day of, the hip was okay, and the knee, well I could feel it, but it wasn't painful. It wasn't painful running on it, but the end result was that I had really messed something up. I gave it some time, a lot of time, and it didn't seem to be sorting itself out. I mentioned it to my chiropractor, who couldn't find anything wrong with the knee, but worked on my hip. That helped. The next time I went, I told him it wasn't much better, and I was going to give in and go to the doctors. He said to go to the physiotherapist instead. So I did that. The physiotherapist also determined that the problem was stemming from the hip area. He gave me some stretches to do. You know how that goes. I was a bit hit and miss with those, but they did help quite a bit. Even though my knee now feels much better when I'm walking on it, I need to get back into that stretching routine so that I can really get it sorted out and get back to running. I need to keep thinking of Olga.
