No running today but my hip (guts?) didn't feel that great doing core either. It almost feels like I have hernia and after seeing Neal Goldberg at FootWorks PT he tentatively confirmed that diagnosis. Rats. Next I need to see my doctor to confirm/deny this.
To see if something is indeed wrong in the hernia region I took a Hot Pilates class at Breathe Hot Yoga after work and sure enough something is off in my core/lower abs.
While down at FootWorks PT I checked out Back Alley Bike Repair. What a cool shop!
As an experiment I wore my heart rate strap during Hot Pilates today. This activity always feels absolutely killer but guess what, my heart rate does not get that high after all. Doing laps on the Howe Street stairs gets it much higher. I suppose my muscles are much closer to being full fatigued doing Pilates than they are on the stairs? Or the walk down the stairs is enough recovery to get it back up again? Interesting.
