To alleviate some of the pain, I sat on a huge pillow and used my cruise control as much as possible. To be sitting up higher than usual did nothing for my balance, proprioceptors and my fear of bridges/tunnels (another post). Yoga breath, where are you?
The next day and the next I hobbled out 4.67 miles and actually felt better which is good because the drive home took nearly 5 hours.
We had a great time. Beach, pool, surfing, and seafood. Nearly heaven.
Only drawback - couple in pool thought they were at Hugh Hefner's. THIS IS THE HILTON GARDEN INN. Families and children and mother runners who are soon-to-be Yoga teachers with injured hamstrings are here. Hello. There aren't enough shots to withstand that. Put some ice on it. The could've borrowed some of mine. Luckily they took their tryst indoors before I got sick.
Can't wait to do this again...
