As some of you know, I have had some troubles with hip pain ever since Boston Marathon 2012. I can’t believe we will be approaching my 3 year anniversary of hip pain in a few weeks!
I have tried pretty much everything to get better. I finally decided to splurge and go to the Spaulding National Running Center (SNRC) to get my running gait analyzed and go through a gait re-training process.
This experience required me to only run when I was at SNRC and under the supervision of my PT. If I ran outside on my own, it is likely I would revert back to my regular bad running habits, defeating the whole purpose of the re-training!
Well..the time as come…I’m allowed to start running on my own!!
I will do a more in depth update about my experience at SNRC once I get through the entire experience and see how my running goes on my own. With the weather getting nicer, I was just so excited to be able to run outside and needed to share the good news!!
And…this may be me the next time you see me running…
