No run again today...another half day of outdoor work. My hip and back did not like this...!

 

Psalm 16:8  I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

This seems silly typing in three days of nothing all at once. No run, no fun, no nothing to talk about. I wonder if I could ride a bike or my horse? Ahhh...for some reason my back doesn't hurt when I ride my horse :-)

Revelation 19:11
And I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.

Well, no running again today. It's kinda weird...everything feels better in the evening and worse in the middle of the night and when I first get up in the morning. I have the pain when I move my legs while laying in bed and when I get up in the morning the first few steps are very painful...but it is getting better.

Yesterday I had to take a couple of Ibuprofen in the middle of the day because I knew I had to walk 3.5 miles in the afternoon. Ibuprofen works well to mask the pain. Hopefully in a couple of days I can start running some short runs.

Proverbs 15:18
Hotheads stir up conflict, but patient people calm down strife.

I need to be more patient!

Yeah something weird is going on with my hip and back. It hurts a lot more at night (in bed) than it does during the day sitting and moving around. I'm going to give it another day and then start the ibuprofen.

Matthew 6:34
Therefore, stop worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

No run again today...but I'm feeling better. My hip didn't bother me throughout the night as it has for the last few days. I streached it in a wierd position (don't know how to describe it) but it popped and then felt better :-) Hopefully in a couple more days I can start running again.

Isaiah 11:4-6

4 He will judge the needy
with righteousness,
   and decide with equity
   for those who suffer in the land.
He will strike the violent
with the rod of his mouth;
   by the breath of his lips
   he will kill the wicked.
5 Righteousness will be
the belt around his hips,
   and faithfulness
   the belt around his waist.
6 The wolf will live with the lamb,
   and the leopard will lie down
   with the young goat;
   the calf and the young lion
   will feed together,
   and a little child will lead them.

My hip is still sore but I decided to run a short run anyway today. The first quarter was painful, after that, it felt better but still slightly irritated. The pain seems to be in the joint or ligaments there’s not any muscle soreness.

Acts 11:23
When he arrived and saw what the grace of God had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts.
