So last night, I managed to carve out 20 minutes to run between putting the kiddo to bed and cramming for my OB final. I stretched for a bit and hopped on the treadmill, hoping to catch the last 20 minutes of ER at the same time. Right away, I noticed that nagging pain again - the one right above my butt just a bit to the right. I felt the pull everytime I took a stride with my right foot. So, I stopped and stretched a few minutes more, which seemed to help a little. I noticed the same pain during my last Houston Fit run, but it eased after the first couple of miles. Anyway, I ended up walking quite a bit since it was less painful to walk. I am hoping for a 10 mile run on Sunday at the park...I guess I'll just see how it goes. I was just happy to fit in some kind of exercise! Tonight - the abbreviated core workout! The kiddo likes to do it with me...except she uses her little wooden blocks instead of hand weights. :-)
Added at 10:30 am - After checking the web, seems my pain could possibly either Sciatica or Piriformis syndrome. I found some stretches to try, so I'll start there.
