Well, at least, I had been until Saturday of last week. Then that little muscle in red decided it wasn't very happy with my training:
This time though, in addition to the piriformis pain, I got a touch of a cold that's making the rounds at work. I knew on Monday when I got a mere five minutes into a warm-up run that running wasn't in my body's plan for the day. I bagged my workout 20 minutes into it and went home try and rest. The following day I headed over to the spa for my deep tissue massage, which after another rough night of thrashing about in bed, left me feeling like a wrung out washcloth.
It's been a couple days since the massage and the tension in my piriformis is easing, but running is still a couple days out. I'm seriously contemplating going to get a functional movement assessment and gait analysis. The fact that it's been my right piriformis twice isn't coincidence. I want to know what the problem is and how to prevent it.
I'm hoping things will start to improve dramatically over the next 48 hours. I'm a little out of sorts when I can't run.
How's everyone else's week been so far? Good, bad? Cheer me up with a comment down below!
