BEFORE YOU READ THIS: I will STILL be teaching Pump. This is NOT a resignation!
I cried. I blamed myself. I was angry. But in fact, I don't feel that pain since I really began to focus on building strength through my legs, glutes and back. My posture has improved, the pain has gone and I feel strong. I will continue to focus on LOW IMPACT cardio and strength building. There is no "cure" for the damage apart from a hip replacement.
Why do I have damage to my hip that appears as if I've been in a serious car accident?In my teenage years I had an addiction to running that saw me doing absurd mileage EVERY day, even when injured, even sick, even when I couldn't actually walk afterwards. I wasn't eating healthily and I suffered for this physically and mentally.
Why am I sharing this?
Thankyou to my brother, Stephen and his beautiful girlfriend, Billie for their assurances that blaming myself and crying wouldn't get me anywhere!
