Weekly Update 9.12 to 9.18.11

Turns out I impinged/inflamed the sacroiliac joint.  That's what's been causing the pain.  Apparently, when excess stress is placed on the joint, the surrounding muscles tense up and spasm as a protective measure to prevent further damage to the distressed area.

I have been able to start running some easy miles.  I probably did fifteen or so miles over 4 runs this week.  The back can handle the bike without much discomfort.  In another week or so, I intend to be "back" to somewhat normal miles with the hopes of salvaging a respectable fall racing season.

Rehab measures include lots of foam rolling on the lower back and hip, stretching both areas (IT-bands), icing, and heating.
