Pain in the Ass

I have not run for the past few days in hopes of healing up a nagging hip injury. My right hip has bothered me off and on for some time and, after last weeks long run, it has become more of a problem to run without significant pain or an altered gait (which creates even more problems!). I have diagnosed the problem as Piriformis syndrome

Here's what I look like after a dozen miles:

Hopefully the rest (with a lot of stretching) will be enough to allow me to run this weekend! I am not planning any runs over 10 miles since I have run long the past few weekends. There are two weeks to go before Wade's Big Adventure and a bit over a month for the St. Jude's Marathon, so I need to stay healthy and whole.
