Run #142 Best run in weeks

Friday, October 05, 2012

Today was my best run in weeks, since my hips started hurting! I managed a 25 minute interval and felt pretty good the whole time. I had to do a little bargaining with myself the last couple blocks, but it was good. The stretching is really helping and I am much less sore and am staying that way. I also ran MWF this week, the first time I have done three runs in a week in a while. Hooray!


Run #141 What a glorious day!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

After the hot weather the last couple days the morning was gorgeous and cool with a nice breeze. I was pleased that my hips weren't too sore to run. The extra stretching seems to be really helping. I did have a somewhat shorter run, as my hips did start to get a little sore. And today was just kind of a challenge. But I'm not sore I think I did the right thing. I still got my half our of exercise in and another two miles. And I still don't hurt.

Run #140 Good Monday Run

Monday, October 01, 2012

Good run today, considering I only ran on Monday last week. Another 2.5 miles. My hips got a bit sore at the end so I stopped a bit sooner than I wanted to. I'm ramping up on the biking. I had a nice ride Thursday after work, and yesterday DH and I got out for a half hour of running errands on the bikes, and then squeezed in another half hour at the end of the day.


Run # 139 In the dark

Monday, September 24, 2012

Well, although it shouldn't actually be dark at 6:00am yet, I am finding many mornings now it is. This seems to relate to the marine I have been running in the dark. I did about 2.7 miles this morning. It felt good. The hips are a little sore, exacerbated today by the fact that I sat in traffic for an hour this morning, when it should have taken me 30 minutes. Good thing I went for a run and had all those nice endorphins coursing through my system making me feel good.

Run # 138 Any run is better than no run

Friday, September 21, 2012

Continuing with my slightly diminished running to make sure I don't hurt myself while I wait for expert help....I am thinking of calling the sports medicine place DH went to. I want to be seen sooner, and I am not sure I really need a podiatrist, because it isn't really a foot issue; I was going to use him for a starting point, but the appt is over a month away. That just really isn't acceptable to me. I did about 2.2 miles this morning, while meditating on what it would look and feel like if my feet were pointed straighter like they should be. A little visualization can't hurt! Last night I got in a 48 minute bike ride with DH to try and make up for the decreased running. I burn a lot more calories on the bike, that's for sure!
