Butt Pain

This morning's run was good. Well, it was better than last week. Laced up the laces and I was off at 4:45 a.m. Did the usual 3 mile loop and headed home. 29 minutes or so which is a bit faster than the 32 minutes it took me last week. Workoutpartner and I sprinted the last 200 yards too. That was awesome.

But now I have Butt Pain.
Right Butt Pain.
I think it is my piriformis muscle. I rolled on my "trigger point therapy" ball after the run and stretched but I'm ready for a little vicodin right now. I guess Ibuprofen will have to do.

Here's where it hurts!

And this is how I am walking!

I'm going to hit the ibuprofen now. Tonight is weights followed by a swim in the pool. I'm going to try to do a mile in the pool and just legs on the weights.

3 of my friends are doing Vineman 70.3 this year. They keep bugging me to sign up and do it too. Not really sure. I've been nursing so many injuries lately i'm afraid to increase my mileage too much. I just got Matt Fitzgerald's new training book (well, I guess it isn't that new) and see if I can find a good training plan to follow. What do you think? Should I or shouldn't I?


  1. Good luck with the butt pain!!

    And I say GO FOR IT and do Vineman!! Strengthen everything up before officially starting training, and that should help you work injury free.

  2. Maybe House will share some of his vicodin with you...ya right!

  3. Ooohhh butt pain is the worst! I had a bit of it during marathon training although mine would get really bad when I sat down for too long. Hang in there chica!
