It's been a while, I know.  But to tell the truth, it's just not very much fun to write about nothing.  I ran 2 weeks ago and was still in pain.  So I decided that I'd try to be smart and not run for the rest of the week and just see if my rear pain would ease up.  Every day it seemed to get better.  So the next Monday I did my stepper thing for an hour and started up my weight routine again.  I also jumped rope and hit the punching bag.  Then Thanksgiving hit.  Not that I overdid it on the food or anything but the 6 hour car ride did nothing good for my knees or butt.  I could feel them both again just doing normal stuff.  So I jumped rope yesterday and worked out a little frustration on the punching bag and stretched.  Today I ran 2 miles and was in pain for the last few blocks.  I don't really know what to do.  I want to be able to run again for longer than 20 minutes.  So maybe it's time to give it a rest for more than a couple of weeks.  It just kills me to think that I was running 25 miles a week or more 6 months ago and now I can't even run 2 miles.  I don't even have a game plan.  I know I need to stretch more and use my roller more.  What else can I do?
