My training schedule calls for a 3-4 mile easy run today. I ran 4 easy miles, time was 38 minutes flat. The first 1/2 mile was fairly painful with my side hurting but after that the pain eased off and it was a good run. Great weather, temp in the lower 60's, air dry...great running weather.
I went to the doctor yesterday to discuss the possible hernia. They could not tell from an external examination I had any problems. I have an appointment with a surgeon next month to discuss what could be causing the pain in my lower abdomen. It could still be a hernia but deep enough not to be felt bulging.
