However I recently started receiving ART (Active Release Technique) treatments on my hip, and I've actually started running again this past week. At my treatment yesterday, my provider told me that the area that needed treatment used to be THIS size but now it's only THIS size. So she is seeing improvement and I'm feeling it, too.
I started the Couch to 5k (C25K) running plan last weekend for the umpteenth time in my short running career. But since I haven't been able to run at all since late August, I figured it was best to start slow.
And I'm going to start swimming with the Masters group at my gym once I get past the work and Thanksgiving busyness of the next week and a half.
So, things are starting to fall into place. I have hope that I'm going to be able to run again - at least enough to get me through a couple of sprint triathlons next summer. And if my hip continues to improve at a steady pace, I've got my eye on a 5k in January.
