At the beginning of the week I let you all in on my workout plans for the week. Shortly after, I began experiencing serious discomfort in my left hip and leg. I decided to listen to my body and take it easy last week. I did not run or go to spin class and decided to stick to the eliptical trainer and incline walking on the treadmill. I also focused a lot of my time on stretching to try to loosen things up. So far, it seems to be helping. My hip and leg feel much better, but the true test will be tomorrow when I return to sitting at a desk all day because sitting for long periods of time is the worst for my hip! I am going to try to pick things up again assuming I continue to feel better. If my hip starts to bother me again, though, I will cut back and give it plenty of time to heal.
