After a couple of vicodin and a lot of sleep, I'm feeling better. I'm still sore but I don't need to walk with the help of walls and chairs. I feel exactly how I felt the day after I ran my very first marathon, which was stiff and every bodily movement was with great effort. The trick is to keep moving, because the minute I sit or lay down, the thigh/hip muscles get tight again. I've been icing my hips when I can, and that's helping. The mentally hard part is that I WAS listening to my body and how I felt when I was running on Saturday morning. I actually felt good until the muscles in the right thigh/hip cramped up, and it came on fast. I was paying attention to my electrolytes and water. As they say, hind sight is 20/20, and I probably should not have run at all on Saturday. I was tight, but not in pain. I thought the tightness would go away once I had warmed up. I digress. I'm one of those stubborn runners who's not going down without a fight.
