Okay a couple of days late, but HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Week before Christmas I was stretching after a really great sprint spin class and felt a sharp pain my hip. Knowing I have issues (car accident in 01) it's not unusual to feel things snap and whatnot.
Fast forward 5 days and I ended up in Urgent Ortho Care. I "snapped my IT band" or so the PA says. Rest, ice and 800mg motrin 3x a day. Follow up with Traumatologist in 10 days - 2 weeks.
Well, yesterday I followed up with my own Ortho for a better opinion since it wasn't easing up.. Torn IT band, trochanteric bursitis, and piriformis strain. 3 shots of cortisone, and muscle relaxers later, I slept most of yesterday (but slept, for the first time since this happening, pretty well)
Allowed to spin again on Monday (with little resistance) for 2 weeks so it's looking like I will be doing a lot of endurance zone riding. Which, SILVER LINING for all my HR Zone gurus know, is where you burn the most fat.
Looking very forward to getting back into the rhythm of working out. :) Good grief Gertrude, I seem to get hurt a lot!
