Enjoying Running

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Have to say I did enjoy my run last night. Ended up parking a bit further up the road than I usually do for a bit of a change and completed the 3.8 mile circuit with me walking/warming down the last 0.3 miles.

Had to walk for a minute up at one stage as I was presented with a never-ending incline and I felt an ache at the top of my left leg. (The opposite side of the past hip pain)

Unfortunately I woke up with pain there in the night which made it difficult to sleep from 4.30 – 7.30.  I can still feel it now so it’s a case of day of rest which is frustrating. I’ll be waiting until the pain goes away, I guess. Hopefully I’ll be able to run on Wednesday/Thursday.

In other news this was my longest run so far.

Distance: 3.50 miles.
Time: 35.04

Hip hip okay! I begin again…

Went out for my first run since my hip problems tonight. I’ve been meaning to since Thursday last week but had a bbq. weekend at my parents up north and poor time management the past couple of nights. (“I’ll go in the morning instead.. it’s too late now” – get up at 6am? as if!)

I was blowing a bit even after starting off slowly and completed 2.1 miles in 20 mins /4 secs.

The important thing is my hip feels alright… woohoo!

Not bad, will have a day of rest tomorrow and then back on it friday evening.
