Quick update: I ran 2 miles at dusk last night (pic to the right) and it went okay… but my butt / hamstring are still sore today. Arg.
I really don’t like biking all that much. I don’t have many good reasons to not like it, I just don’t. I feel like a lot of my complaints stem with all of the new “gear” that you need to bike. Special shoes, helmet, water bottles, spandex, crotch padding – an equipment list that reads like a chapter in 50 Shades of Gray. The reality is that I probably have MORE gear for running, I’ve just been used to slogging it all around for the last 10 years. Running is my missionary position. So I suppose I just need to suck it up, strap on my helmet and crotch pad, and dive in. Please sir, may I have another.

There are a lot of reasons to LOVE biking. You can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time, you get to feel the wind in your hair,
This issue has gone on long enough that I’m going to actually look into professional help. That is a big step for me as I am generally cheap enough that I do NOT like to spend money for someone to tell me to “just rest”. I’m going to look into Active Release / Chiropractor / Physical Therapy and see where that takes me. If nothing else, I hope that they’ll tell me what I am doing wrong and how I can mix things up a bit. Because 10 years of missionary position running is a hard habit to break.
