Sore Butt: aka Piriformis Syndrome

Managed to get injury #4 on my quest back into 50 miles. I felt great on Tuesday night and found myself running in the low 7 minutes w/o any distress. Decided to do a few fartleks in the 6:15 pace and felt great. Woke up with a sore butt. Doing my typical Google diagnosis, I found that I have: Piriformis Syndrom Going to take a few days off and chill out.

Speedwork always hurts you yet the siren's song keeps pulling you back.

your right there man. I have these need to sprint. This time it was just a bit of fartlek and I really think I will be fine. For me, the worst time is when I feel the best as I can't stop pushing it. But, at least I recognize the issue now... ;)
