Ouch, Something is a bit off

For the past few weeks I have been fighting some nagging niggles (yes I said it). It started in my right groin, just aching a tad every so often. It then seemed to move into my lower ab area and now the upper. It feels as though I have strained my abs, yet I do not recall doing anything harsh that would have aggravated it. I am a bit confused as to what is going on, though all I know is that it hurts to sneeze and also to sit up from lying down. It feels okay to run though, its the after effects that hurt. I think it is about time to book an appointment with either a doctor or physio to see what is going on! I hope I don't get told "Don't run" as training is going really well at the moment! Anyone had any issues such as this?

Maybe it is just related to my shoes. I have been pushing them a bit lately as the weather has been nasty and muddy. I was saving my new shoes until things dried up a bit. Then again, it is still January on the Wetcoast, so I guess there is no saving the shoes. I should probably just give in and wear them. Shoes are expensive, so I tend to run them longer than I should, which I know is not good. Time to get those pretty white shoes dirty I think!

To change the subject, here is an updated photo of baby Maggie, taken on New Years Eve. Not the best photo as she was on mom's lap.

And what is a blog without photos of my children. I am speaking of my kitties of course.

Socket all sprawled out taking a nap

Kitties cuddling earlier this evening

Lastly, Socket has a new game in which he enjoys playing. He only likes this toy if we use it this way. If it moves any slower or along the ground, he is not interested. It has to spin fast and in the air. I swear one day we will find him sitting there, all skittish flicking his head back and forth, but man is it funny to watch.

I was going to make some snarky comment about warming up too fast causing your issues (OH... I guess I still did!), but then I saw the picture of the kitties cuddling. You're so lucky they love eachother like that. I just knew Socket wanted a friend. They rock!!

I LOVE your cats!! As for the injury - maybe tight soaz or hip flexors? Good luck with the injury - I hope it goes away FAST!
