These are the hip strengthening exercises:

My hope is that it heals in time to get at least 1, 20 mile run in 
before January 15th's AZ Marathon.


  1. Sorry to hear your injured! I see your water jogging, this is great. I will be doing this too during the week since I may have pushed it too soon with my injury.
    Hope everything goes well and your able to do a 20mile run before your next race :)

  2. Oh nooo I am so so sorry to hear about the injury! Water jogging will definitely help and strengthening is great too
    Good luck lady, keep us updated!

  3. Get better quick, Christie!! The Myrtle routine is something I have heard of- supposed to be fantastic. Keep up the hard work. Your machine WILL be up and running again soon.

  4. Thank you for your sweet sweet comment on my marathon post :)

    Oh my goodness, I somehow missed your post last week about your injury.

    I AM SO SORRY to hear about it!!! Your training had been going amazingly.

    If it's any sort of consolation, I had a stress fracture in my pelvis in August 2010 and I took off FIVE months from running...and I lived to tell about it. And I think I came back as a smarter/faster runner because of it. So I know it is super super hard, but you will make it through this!!

  5. Hang in there! So man of us are in the same boat. I hope it's nothing serious and you are able to prepare for the upcoming race. It's good to see you cross training at least! Hold on to the fitness that you can and take care of yourself!

  6. Oh ick! Hope you are feeling better soon! Our track team does that exact same video that Sara is doing (her husband, Brett, is a graduate of our school :)); I've been doing that after every run and it is really helping my owie hamstring.

    I have a marathon on the 22nd and can't get in a 20-miler's to hoping we both can soon!!!! You're doing a great job cross training!!!

  7. Sorry about your injury :-(. Thanks for posting that great hip exercise video, now I just need to make time to do it.
