What do we do when we fall off the horse?

I can honstly say that for most of the last six weeks that I wanted to be running, but I really haven't been able to put in much of an effort. My right hamstring and left hip flexor have been continually tight and sore, leading me to believe that I have an underlying hip alignment problem. Some strengthening and stretching exercises have helped, and I think I will be able to see a massage therapist and maybe a chiropractor soon. For the last 3 or 4 weeks I have been putting in 10-20 minute jogs 3-5 times per week to get the blood flowing before my strength and stretching sessions.

I hope that I have progressed to the point of having a very modest training regimen and holding myself to a basic schedule. Nothing makes you want to run like forced time off. I have probably run less than a marathon total in the last 6 weeks.

I don't have any big goals yet, but I've got some ideas...
