Focusing on my hips.

I picked up the new issue of Fitness, http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/. I was kind of scared that it would be kind of hoakey and suggest all sorts of crazy detox/cleanses & have silly articles. I am pleasantly surprised with the content..well I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but I’m a good ways through it.

I have heard and read a lot about that fact that weak hips can cause knee injuries, which can lead to other injuries. Fitness has an article regarding this exact issue. I can’t find the article on the magazine website, but it’s called Double Jeopardy  They suggest this site http://www.runninginjuryclinic.com/ to find some hip strengthening exercises. Very informative article. I am encouraged to work on my hip strength, especially with the knee pain that I have been having lately.

Today I ran 3mi , 29:48.  No knee pain. My shins were killing me for about a mile, the pain eventually went away. The whole time they were hurting I was thinking, great, I hope I don’t have shin splints. That article Double Jeopardy kind of made me paranoid. I obviously don’t want to injure myself, and I really don’t want to injure myself because I didn’t take care of a previous injury. I also did 2 sets of 20 push ups right after my run. I came home and did side leg lifts 3 sets of 15 ; cancan cross (exercise I saw in fitness magazine) 2 sets of 10; bridge leg lift 1 set of 15 (this one hurt my right hamstring, its feeling kind of tight).

Breakfast: Blueberry Special K with 1% milk

Lunch: left over spaghetti

Snacks: pretzels, Chobani pomegranate greek yogurt (FAIL, ew I don’t like pomegranate apparently), banana, string cheese…

Dinner: Crunchy Ranch Chicken, Yum!
