I selected not to run last Thursday and Friday because of my right hip pain. It gets better, but will begin to hurt again when I run. I'm a little confused that this is happening but Kent says that this is normal as much as I have run in the past 9 months. Personally....I do NOT like it!! Yesterday afternoon I felt like I could get out and run slowly today, but then night came. I have always had a tendency to get cramps in my calves and feet for as long as I have been drawing a breath in this crazy old world. But they have subsided in the last few months. It's been quite a while since I've gotten them. Well, last night I was plagued with severe calf cramps! It hurt really bad. So much so that not only is my muscle extremely tender, I was hardly able to walk this morning. Sooooo disappointing!! I really wanted to run. I'm missing it a lot. Now, however it is to be done, I'm gonna have to rethink all of this.
If there is anyone who can share how they have handled this kind of situation or have read about what one can do, PLEASE share it!! I'm real desperate and don't want to put away my running shoes for at least another 10 years ... Thanks for your help ...

Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
