Pain in the...

I ran a 5K in December, very early in my pregnancy. I didn't stretch enough for the cold temps, and (moderately) pulled my right glute.

That was over three months ago. And wouldn't you know it, it's still bugging me. I stretch it, I heat it, I massage it, I rest it. But it continues to seize up on me whenever I run or walk. It's a literal pain in the ass.

My doctor says it's just one of the physiological complications of pregnancy. My body is so focused on growing a person, that my own muscle recovery suffers. And in turn, so do I. Just another reminder of what a total body experience pregnancy is.
