the good news is that the weekend was good. the bad news is that i thought my bum pain was cured and i went for a run on saturday and now it's back with a vengeance and i can hardly walk. seriously i'm hobbling around.
i've self-diagnosed, and my problem is definitely this:
(i've copied this next part from online)
Sciatica is a pain that shoots along the sciatic nerve, radiating through the buttocks and down the back of the leg and as far as the foot. The two sciatic nerves (one on each side of the lower body) are the longest in the human nervous system, running all the way from the lower back through the thighs and calves to the feet.
Sciatica is caused by different types of pressure on the sciatic nerve in the lower back or buttocks. It can also be the result of damage to the nerve roots that feed into the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is usually felt only on one side of the body. The pain can occur along the entire length of the sciatic nerve.
i don't think there is a chance that it can be something else. sad but true. i am going to do no impact exercising at ALL and if it doesn't feel better by wednesday i will visit the doctor.
so now that i'm not doing cardio, i'm going to have to watch my diet more carefully, especially because sunday morning is when the plane leaves for california!
in other news, i am using windows live writer to write this post and it's very interesting. the drag and drop photo feature is probably the best part.
