Pain in the butt
mr yuk
So midway through the afternoon at Klutz today, my right buttock started to hurt.  Not tons, and it didn't ache, but there was a little jolt with every step I took.  Things were a little more physical there than usual this morning but this didn't make any particular sense.  I did what I could to stretch and finished out the afternoon; it didn't seem too awful.

On my way home I debated what to do with my early evening.  I was supposed to run tonight, but I wasn't certain that was a good idea anymore.  I figured I would do the smaller loop and everything would be okay.  Then I arrived home and got out of the car.  OW!

Apparently sitting still just lets whatever is going on stiffen up to horrid extremes. I was limping as I got out of the car, but once again as I moved around some it got better.  It didn't go away mind you, but wasn't as awful.  I've done all the stretches I know for that area and nothing seems to be hitting exactly the right spot.  I'm stuck in a catch 22 where it hurts to walk, but walking is better than sitting still.

I decided not to run tonight.  I'm annoyed that as I'm finally getting my fitness stuff back on track something like this happens.  Though I did realize yesterday that I had planned my ramp up in running this week forgetting that I would be spending six hours on my feet every day at Klutz, so I think I'm coming out even at least.  But grrrr...

Sounds like sciatica pain to me. I have it on and off for years, but get it horribly when pregnant and definitely sitting or laying makes it worse. I hope you feel better!

From what little I know of sciatica I think you may be right. I need to do some research I suppose and figure out how to feel better. Thanks for the good wishes.

Ouch, to bad about the running.

Will you still be on track for the marathon? or does this throw your schedule off?

Missing a day or two isn't a problem. The half isn't until late July so I've got time - it's just a question of how long this takes to feel better. I've gotten pretty good at rejiggering schedules so I'm not too concerened yet.

ouchies. sciatica sounds about right, but that doesn't sound like fun to deal with. Hopefully it'll be better soon!

It was a little sore when I woke up today and then it was just fine. I did stop to stretch several times during the day and once it felt like it might be coming back but didn't. So who knows?
