Still a lot of biking. Still a lot of hip pain.
Sunday: 38 minutes on the bike. A few minutes of weights.
Monday: 42 minutes on the bike. I also saw my PT and we talked about the possibility of getting some imaging done on my hip to make sure we aren’t missing anything. I had a feeling that was going to be the next step. I just feel that it should be getting better at this point, and it isn’t getting better.
Tuesday: 45 minutes on the bike.
Wednesday: 37 minutes on the bike along with a little bit of strength work for my arms.
Thursday: Unintended day off. I wore my TENS unit to work. Everything hurt.
Friday: 39 minutes on the bike and a little bit of strength work. I had a PT appt in the morning. She did some ultrasound on my piriformis/glutes and then the PT student that is interning there, used a sink plunger to suction against my skin and pull up on my IT band. It was an interesting and unique feeling. I think it may have had some benefit and it actually felt pretty good over the hip bursa area. I also got another ionto patch. Then I had a chiropractor appointment and got everything back in alignment, including my pelvis, which had decided to rotate a little bit. We talked more about scheduling some imaging and I called my primary provider to get an X-ray/MRI scheduled. Unfortunately, she was out of the office, so I will have to wait until Monday to talk to her and get something scheduled.
Saturday: 5K with my son benefiting the Highground Veterans Memorial. We had a great time. I spent the rest of the day icing and taking ibuprofen. I’ll try to get a race recap up in the next couple of days.
