So....I hurt my hip again training for the Cap 10K. 2 weeks ago I over did it and now have a hip abductor strain. I've had to take the last 2 weeks off running...didn't do anything for 1 week, then last week worked the elliptical and cycling. That went well....however today was my first day back actually running. SIGH. I was only able to do 2 miles on the treadmill before I started to feel the strain, then switched to elliptical for another 2 miles. And yup, my hip is throbbing again. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. My Dr said I could run the race...but would probably be in pain. I know I won't be able to obtain a decent time at all (last year finished in 55 mins...this year looking more like 1hr and 15 mins), and the most I have run is 4.2 miles straight. Should be interesting come Sunday morning. Wish me luck!
