two words for you today:

if you guessed BUM PAIN you would be correct. i had a little yesterday as well, so obviously it was my tuesday night incline treadmill walk that did this to me. maybe my problem is not so much running, but walking fast on an incline. i probably won't be running tonight. it's raining anyway ... maybe i'll try the treadmill and see how i feel but i am definitely not going to push it. i'll do nothing if i have to! hear that? NOTHING!

i really never imagined the day when i'd be pissed about not being able to fit in my workout. ha! i have to put my health before my training though.

i really can't push it because there is NO WAY i'm going to be a gimping gus on vacation like i was last year at this exact time in california. no way hose!

ouch! nooooooo!!! Be gentle for now, good decision!
No more incline for you! (said à la Soup Nazi;) It's silly but incline walking/running seems to bring a ton of little aches and pain to a lot of people including me - incline is evil! LOL Hope your bum pain goes away clikety quick! Take care!

booo! That sucks! You're right though - you don't want to make it worse. It sucks to not workout when you really want to though...

Feel better soon!

HAH! that picture made me crack a rib laughing! i had to take 3 days off running for my pulled hamstring, and hated it, but i didn't want to injure myself further. hope you feel better! :)

Boooo bum pain!

I remember my physio telling me to avoid inclines when my hip was acting up. Hope it clears up soon dahlin'!

I just found your blog yesterday, after reading through a lot of your older posts I think we're kindred spirits. You know when you find a blog that just "fits" with you? Anyway I was wondering if I could contact you to talk to you a bit more about your career and how you ended up what you're doing. I just graduated with a B.A. and am interested in the publishing world.

Ow! Evil bum!

Hope you feel better soon, lady. And I can't wait to get to the point where I'm actually sad to not be able to work out! ;)
