Someone told me that we are already 3% of the way though 2012. It made me frantic and feel the need to evaluate how I’m coming along with my 2012 goals, and then I remembered that I don’t have any.
Shortly after that I read this great quote:
“I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question” – Harun Yahya
To answer that, in reference to run goals, is plain and simple; I don’t trust my legs, or the condition of my pelvis. My pelvis is 16 millimeters high on the left side, which is causing a rotation of pains from the pinch in my glute, to the hamstring, to the overworked calf.
To fix it, I’ve called a couple of chiropractors.
Chiropractor #1 – I went in for a consultation, all went fine until he said this, “No running”, and quickly left the room. WHAT?!! You can’t just say that and walk out. I won’t see a health care professional who does that. After that absurdity, I went for a pain-free 3 mile treadmill run.
Chiropractor #2 – I went to this guy the following evening for a consultation, and found his listening and retaining my specific pelvis problem to be spotty. Sort of like poor cell phone signal. The second visit was an hour lecture about the spine. I realize it’s good to know a little about what’s going on, but it was information overload and not specific to my case. When I finally got an adjustment it was done on my neck. MY NECK!! Including the first consultation, getting my neck cracked cost me $89 out of pocket. The desire to go back to him is very slim.
Chiropractor #3 – Pending discovery. Third time is a charm?
What’s most important to me right now is that I’m going to keep fighting no matter how frustrating it is. To quote Jenn’s 2012 mantra, “I’m FINDING A WAY”
My head is on straight, and now I just need to get my pelvis there too.
