Training Tuesday: waiting

I'm in limbo.  Last Friday I had an arthrogram and MRI done on my hip.  It sorta looked like this:
not my hip - source
Yes, that's a big-ass needle being injected into a hip socket.  Trust me when I say it wasn't quite as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it certainly wasn't pleasant.

I hope to get some answers when I see my PT tonight.  All I know is that I don't have a labral tear or a fracture.  The office girl said something about tendonitis in one of the muscles but she didn't elaborate and I didn't have the patience to try and get any information out of her.  All the doctor's note said was to continue PT and follow up in a month.

So I'm in limbo.  I've run 3 times since Wednesday, only 2 stupid miles each time, and each one was worse than the one before it.  I refuse to think I'm done for the year, but who knows.  Maybe I am.

Ironically, I'm blogging over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans today on how to improve your speed.  Sucks I can't even take my own advice.
