Today was an interesting day with regard to running! I had a short run planned and thought it would be an easy run. It was not. Within the first half mile, I “stumbled” or did something that felt like stumbling. I shook it off and kept running. Not to much after that, it happened again only this time it took almost every thing I could muster to keep my body upright and not landing face first on the asphalt. I shook it off, but was beginning to wonder what was going on. Just over half way through my run it happened a third time and again I had to work hard to keep myself upright. I couldn’t get my left leg to work and bring my foot up high enough to clear the curb and my foot hit the curb with enough force that I thought I broke my big toe. I was in a lot of pain and realized that my left leg was not functioning well enough to support my body weight. This is a concern. I have no idea what is going on. I am also having some substantial pain just under the hip joint on the left leg, which means that I won’t be sleeping well since I almost always sleep on my left side. It is extremely painful now to do so.
So I will be treating it with some mild pain killers and anti inflammatory drugs (i.e. Tylenol), ice and essential oils. I will also be seeing the Chiropractor as soon as I can get in. If all that comes up without answers or relief – off to the doctor I will be going.
