We got back from our trip to Denver last night, and other than the looong drive and somewhat disappointing Great Urban Race, it was a lot of fun. Immediately before this trip we had two weeks of out-of-town company, so it's really nice to be back to a normal routine for a while. (Or as M.H. put it, "I can't wait to have a day where I don't hear the laughter of little children.")
So kind of a fun ride today, no real purpose, just riding. As per the plan. :)
I'm starting to not be able to feel the pain in my hip, so I think I'm going to postpone seeking out physical therapy for a few more weeks and see if the exercises my brother-in-law suggested awhile back — plus not running, plus focusing on losing a few pounds — can whip it back into shape. It would be nice to get away with not spending the money. Still, I'm not going to endanger the Ironman over this, so just a few more weeks of rest to see how it does, and then I will be a good girl and get physical therapy if I need it.
