I’ve always been the kind of guywho would much rather kick backwith a cold one and watch otherpeople play sports than actually doany myself.Soccer, football, basketball,baseball … you name it, I’dhappily sit back and watchsomebody else do it, but I’venever been the kind to wielda bat myself. My couch po-tato gene has always beensomewhat dominant.This year, that allchanged: my geneticre-engineering of myself began this Memorial Dayweekend. I started run-ning and very quickly setmyself the goal of runningthe New York marathonon Nov. 7. I did everythingby the book, or as by thebook as somebody goingfrom zero exercise to afull marathon in just a fewmonths can do. I followed arespected training program,never upped my mileage bymore than the recommended10 percent per week, I crosstrained (OK, not that much,but some), and I always tookthe prescribed number of restdays. Those were my favorite:I’m an expert rester.In short, I tried as hard aspossible to be a sensible run-ner, and for the first coupleof months everythingwas going swimmingly.Then, all of a sudden, I feltsomething in my right hip.It started as a dull painthat went away soon afterrunning, but it got progres-sively worse. Within aweek or so it was constant.Before long, I found it dif-ficult to walk and runningwas absolutely out of thequestion.One X-ray, two doctor’s visits, twophysical therapy sessions and an MRIlater, the diagnosis was in: tendinitisin my hip, a labral tear and a minorgluteus medius (butt) tear. That’sright, a literal pain in my butt, to gowith the figurative one. The twotears aren’t that much of problem,but the tendinitis is more of an is-sue. It’s basically tennis elbow inmy hip. Honestly, who gets tenniselbow in their hip?So I’ve taken a little enforcedtime off, and the good news is I ap-pear to be making a good recovery.My 2010 marathon dream isthankfully still alive, but I’ve had toscale back my ambition somewhat:A month ago I was pretty confidentthat I’d be able to break a sub-fourhour marathon, now I’ll just behappy to finish.I resume my training this week,fingers crossed that all goes well.And if anyone ever tells you thatthis marathon training lark is easy,they’re lying.
