i started the 7 day course of steroids last week. finished them up on wednesday of this week. i can say this... my butt doesn't hurt nearly like it has. there's still discomfort when i stretch but not like before the steroids so maybe i'm on the mend... we'll see.
in the meantime, i'm just going to run and try and build up my endurance. i mean, i'm still walking when running 3 road miles so there's that. its disappointing but i know what i'm capable of and with some steady training i should be able to run the high cliff 25K i've got coming up in august. it's time to put together a training plan and get at it.
