On Saturday equipped with Gu Chews and a bottle of Nuun, I set out to conquer Top of the World – one of my favorite running trails….and I was apparently inspired to dress like a bumble bee as well.
Instead, this little bumble bee never took flight – plagued by tight a gnarly tight hamstring that didn’t seem right to run on about 2 miles in (it was along, arduous walk back to my car).
I have been plagued by tightness and unsure of where all of this funky right leg/back pseudo-injuries have been coming from….until I saw this (thanks Laguna Hills 10k for the photo evidence).
Freak stride? Nope, not that lucky….further evidence of my tweaky tricks…
WTH am I doing with my right foot when I run?
I’ve seen more grace out of a pimply faced adolescent boy trying to get his groove on at the jr. high dance with his size 11 feet, and 5’2″ frame. Yeesh!
My hammy is still tighter than JLo’s body suits, so until I get that mess under control I’m just riding my bike (blech, blerg) and
salivating thinking about the run I missed on Saturday just dealing with it.
Lest you think I get my awkward, gangly Taylor Swift on with every stride, let me assure you, I’m only awkward 90% of the time. Thanks to the photog for giving me one graceful moment….well except for that weird looking thigh thing, but hey beggars can’t be choosers.
So my question for those of you who know anything about anything out there….
Why am I running like a freak?
Aside from the obvious…and please dear family members, do not use this question as an open forum to state reasons that should forever be kept secret.
Do you have a funny stride tick you need to kick?
If you’ve kicked a funky tick how did you do it?
