Headcold, Running and the Chiropractor!


And I thought a bum knee was bad! I'm hating my back right now, I hurt it about a month ago while coming out of plow pose incorrectly (a number of times), stupid I know, but now I'm at the mercy of a chiropractor who I'm hoping will fix me. He wants to see me 3 times a week, and even though he is reasonable, it's a bit much for my budget. I'm committing to a month, then I'll see where I'm at 'cuz to be honest, I'm not really loving it. I know people who swear by this guy (and other chiro's) then there are those who feel the whole thing is a sham. While I don't think it's a sham, I don't want to be a slave the adjustments for the rest of my life. So I guess I'll reevaluate the whole thing at the end of the month.

So after 3 weeks of no running, I ran a quick 2 miles yesterday. I wasn't feeling great, but the weather was so nice and the snow almost gone, so I figured I'd head out to the docks and back. I took it slow (and not on purpose, I'm just slow) about a 10 minute pace, and although my goal was to not stop, I had to twice....the chiropractor adjusted me right into a head cold and I just couldn't breathe! It was great getting out there though! I'm taking today off, but am planning on running tomorrow morning before work. Maybe for (gasp) 3 miles. We'll see how much mucous is still in me!

I am a fan of the Chiro and I believe in it, but I only go twice a week when I am hurting (like right now) and regularly once a week. I think you do what is best for you. Hope you feel better!
