I expect to feel pain in my hip whenever I walk around, and then I don’t and it is AWESOME. I was pretty absent all last week because of exams, but I got a couple little runs in and I had a fabulous weekend and am ready for that spring/summer life. Just a short post about the week’s runs today because I want to get going to bed soon!
Wednesday: 2.36mi – The night before, I ran about halfway home from the dining hall (so maybe like 0.15mi) and my hip felt NORMAL, so I went for a short 20-minute test run on Wednesday and had zero pain!!! + foam rolling and 7-min core
Friday: 2.43mi – Matt was going to run a couple miles with me on Thursday, but I was sore from Wednesday, so we decided I would be better off resting. Ran Friday instead with another friend on trails in the rain. 🙂
Sunday: 6mi – An out-and-back through a couple trails near Matt’s house. My feet felt pretty weak and I had to stop and stretch at the end of mile 4, but in retrospect I’m very happy about this. I had a giant knot in my butt at the end, but that’s gone now too. 🙂
Total running for the week: 10.79mi
All in all, a short but productive running week. Even if I had felt up to running more, with exams there would have been no way. I definitely won’t be in good shape for Bayshore in four weeks, but if all goes well I should at least be able to get one or two ten-milers in over the next couple weeks.
And now, I sleep.
