Lisa, that's so great about your hip!!! So, glute muscles were the culprit? Hmm.
I did a 40 min. run today and it was HARD! I've been restricting my calories lately and it's starting to show. But, I'm okay with it. As long as I can still run, even if it's not a good run, I'm fine. I really want to drop this weight and I have the right mindset to do it now. So far I'm down more than 5 lbs!!
YAY!!! way to go on those 5 lbs, losing weight is hard!!
The sacro-iliac pain was due to imbalance in hip stability muscles. I'm doing more pilates to concintrate on the lower abs (I knew those were horrible), and the physical therapist is giving me all kinds of "glut max and glut med" exercises to go along with the pilates, running, and yoga that I"m already doing. During running, the left hip would rotate back while the right hip would rotate forward. the hips are supposed to stay on the same plane (if htat makes sense). I'm going to ask the doctor about the bone spurs on the pubic bone, that's got me concerned now too.
off to work on my abs, and my yoga. have a great day ladies!!
