Monday was supposed to be a rest day but since my friend-Zumba instructor won’t be here on Wednesday, we had our regular Wednesday’s Zumba on Monday. Didn’t have much energy but still managed to do the class successfully.

Tuesday was a rest day after 3 work-out days. Did a 1 hour walk with my puppy to get my steps full.

Wednesday I had to go to the city to give more blood for analysis. The weather was more or less OK so I cycled. After a visit to the doctor I did some thrift shopping. Found a pair of linen khaki shorts for 2€! Plus, in one store the sales lady told me: “You are looking at large sizes. Small sizes are on the other side of the store.” That was a nice compliment. 🙂 After a visit to the city I had a regular 30 minute walk and in the evening did 1 hour of all over muscle exersizes. I felt this strange pain in my left buttock. That made me worry.

Thursday morning I did a nice 30 minute walk with my dog but the weather was rainy, cold and windy. Since it was a running day, I had an hour long run in the evening. Half way there I felt the buttock pain again in my left side but decided to finish my run. I was really worried because I have read about another Estonian blogger’s sciatic pain and piriformis pain (check out Heidi’s blog here).

Friday morning I did a regular 30 minute walk. During the day I was baking and cooking all the time so standing on my feet. At 6 PM I felt sharp pain in my lower back in the left buttock area. I decided not to go for a run and rest a little and do a nice slow cycling hour later on in the evening. 

Saturday was official rest day. I had a nice long walk with my dog. The weather was beautiful, sun was shining. I saw people running and wished it was me. I felt a little pain in my buttock during the day but that was nothing compared to the days before. Wondered if I could run on Sunday.

Running shoes on but no running for me 😦

On Sunday I really really wanted to go for a run. I decided to take it nice and slow. Usually I have the goal to improve my best time or last run’s time. This time my only goal was to not hurt myself and go totally by how my back and ass are feeling. My average speed was only 7,02 km/h but I managed to run my almost 7 kilometre lap without any pain. I was so relieved. I think I listened to my legs and butt during this run more than my music. 😀 I just really didn’t want to overdo it and. Health is the most important.



In total:

3 hours 30 minutes of walking

2 hours of cycling

1 hour of Zumba

1 hour of muscle exercizes

2 hours of running


This week would have been a great but the sciatic pain really f*cked up my otherwise good week. I’m really looking forward to getting better and running more and faster again. Narva Energy Run in less than 2 weeks. I don’t want to miss that, I really don’t.
