Just a Quick Post...

... to say that things are coming along with the whole moving thing and the flooring is being done as I write. :0) Hopefully next week by this time I will be living at the new house, pending of course if my lovely husband calls to set up some movers... lol My sister, son, and hubby painted all weekend and I was sent off to do errands since I can't do much.

I have scoped out some nice pathways that go around town but I am thinking it may only end up as a 5 ish km loop with a bit of an out and back. I think once I get my mileage up again here, hopefully soon, that I may have to invest in a safety vest to run on the side of the high way or back roads. Just the thought of getting out there is exciting... new places to run! :0)

Pain wise things are actually looking up the last two days where as the pain has not been as strong and not as much! Maybe there may be a dim light starting at the end of the tunnel... ;0)

By the way, my son is doing a bit better and has returned to school today. He still is worried but we are doing much better.

Oh! The IT band thing? I did have to laugh because to them I was almost speaking another language or something. I seriously would have thought they SHOULD know what that is. Mind you if sports injuries is not their specialty and they are just a family practitioner, maybe they just briefly cover it? I don't know... I am just making assumptions here and think maybe I should be looking at finding a new doctor that is both a family practitioner with experience in sports medicine... or maybe I am just asking for too much. lol Just go with the flow I think and it should all work out. :0)

Cheers!

New flooring - how fun!

Glad your son is feeling better. I'm sure it takes a lot of patience and understanding to help him through these things.

I hope the pain starts feeling better all the time.

If you have an ortho doc - you might want to make sure that he/she has a running background, runs themselves or is used to treating runners. It helps a lot because they understand the problems that runners face and can usually identify them more quickly. Just a thought. On the other hand, if you like your ortho that means a lot too!
