I’m Not Hip

You guys probably figured out I’m not too hip, but this really isn’t about my lack of trendiness.  Nope, it’s actually about my hip.  It hurts.  I was so pumped to run 4-5 miles today with music, thanks to the new armband I received earlier this week.  When I got out of bed though, all I could think was OuOuOuOuch!  I think my IT band might be super tight from biking yesterday at the gym, but I’m not actually sure what it is.  All I know is that my right hip hurts, and if I run, I will hurt it worse.

Therefore, I had a wee bit of cereal with almond milk, some plain coffee, and a purple monster to drown my sorrows.  By the way, when I say “plain” coffee, I mean “black” coffee.  When I went up North (*gasp*) and asked for plain coffee, the guy almost put creamer or something in it.  I was like, woah woah woah!  I said plain buddy!  Then as I complained to Kevin (the resident yankee), he informed me that in some areas of the country, plain is not synonomous with black.  Really?  Can anyone explain to me what else plain could mean?  Sugar, cream, milk, D – all of the above???  Just curious.


I like black coffee and bright mornings!

I think I’ll probably do a little pilates or light yoga to stretch things out in hopes of getting that run in tomorrow morning instead.  We have two of Kevin’s college roomies staying at our house this weekend.  Because the boys stayed up late polishing off a bottle of whiskey and a few beers, they are still in bed.  I should have plenty of time to get in some downward facing dog or other awkward poses before any guests come downstairs.  Oh, and did I mention I hated whiskey?  I tried to clean up the kitchen a bit this morning, and just smelling that stuff made me nautious.  Oh well – not everything’s for everyone, right?

For anyone who is interested, I do Denise Austin pilates/yoga, my own blend of routine/stretches, or easy workouts from Exercise TV’s website.  Here is a link to a good pilates one, and here is a link to a good yoga one.  I might do something lighter than those today, but they’re pretty good.

You know what else is good?  Water pilates!  (Yep, when the boys finally wake from their slumber, we’ll be hitting the lake again.  Woohoo!)

  1. Ouch! I struggle with sciatica so I feel your pain! It’s so frustrating when you have to rest but don’t want to! Hope it gets better soon!

  2. The lake looks like a lot of fun! We have a piece of property we’ve been renting at our lake for about 10 years now with all my husband’s friends. It used to be so much fun but now every single one of them has kids or is pregnant and hardly anyone goes anymore. Not fun! Kids shouldn’t make you lame imo 😉

  3. ooh that hip doesn’t sound fun 😦 I hope the pain subsides for you. As far as coffee, I use to work at a bagel store here in NY and coffee regular was always milk and two sugars. I’m not sure why. You thinking seems more logical!

  4. I am also confused by people who think “plain” coffee means anything other than “black”. If I wanted cream or sugar I would say “with cream” or “with sugar”

    I hope you were able to get your workout in before your guests woke up!

  5. I’m so sorry your hip hurts!! Yoga will deffinately help out :), and no, I don’t have anything planned this weekend (my whole family has the flu
    :(. Feel better!! Miriam@The Pioneer Cookbook”

  6. Plain means…plain.

    I will never try to give you anything but coffee. Pure black coffee.

    I promise.

  7. Oh no! Hope you start to feel better! I hate when injuries hinder my workout plans. This weekend I was supposed to be packing but of course I have waited to the last minute!

  8. Aww I am sorry about your hip! Mine have been bothering me a bit too! I am noticing that they have been hurting after I run….gotta get that checked out! Feel better!

  9. Hope your hip is feeling better!!!
    I’ve only ever heard of it as black coffee but if you said plain to me i would probably make it black – thats a tricky one 🙂
