So practice last night was pretty relaxed...nothing too ridiculous or anything. And I felt fine. Felt fine during the run, fine after the run, fine when I went to bed. At 4:45am, I woke up...feeling as if someone was stabbing my right hip with an ice pick. Stretching didn't help. Walking around didn't help. So I tried to get a couple more hours of sleep, which was only partially successful.
Then when I woke up for reals, same thing! Arrrrgh. So I thought, okay, I'll walk to the bus, go to school, reassess. The walk (which normally takes 7 minutes) took me almost 15 b/c my right side kept collapsing on me. Big, big boo. So since my dr is on the way to school, I scheduled an appt and they told me to "rest and take lots of extra-strength ibuprofen". See if it gets better, yada, yada, yada. I've never had pain like this before, and it was so out of the blue. She thought it's a strained ligament/tendon or something. I don't know. I just know that it's hard to work (much of my labwork involves a lot of walking around), hard to walk, and training is out of the question. Sucks because I was just thinking last night how running fast is feeling easy these days. Note to self: do not jinx yourself.
Hopefully this will end as suddenly as it began. In that hope, I'm off to take a couple more Wal-profen. I love how they make up their own tacky names. Seriously, I love walking down the aisles and seeing what sort of fake names they are able to come up with.
