Complete-ish. I’m missing 11 Miles. I rearranged my running for a busy week and planned to finish up tonight with 11 Miles, but my left hip has other plans. My left hip has been tight for a couple days and I’ve been nursing it along. Then at mile 2 of the 5K race today it was shooting pain something fierce. I’m not ready to call this an injury, rather a set back. It’s feels muscular or IT band-ish. So more Aleeve, heating pad, a hot soak with Epsom Salt, some Icy Hot and no 11 Miles.
Normally I would be in a fit about this already, but surprisingly not yet. I’m surprised how calm I’ve been about it. Just treat it and move forward. Hopefully it comes around in a couple days. If not, I’m off to the physical therapist.
Here is what I got done this week:
M: Bike 8.8 Miles (P4, L6, 30:00, 17.6 mph), Abs and Upper Body Strengthening
T: 6 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 45:01, 7:31 Pace), Push Ups
F: 13 Miles Long (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 1:35:10, 7:20 Pace), Push Ups
Sa: 9 Miles Recovery (‘Hood, 1:10:50, 7:53 Pace)
Su: 3.1 Miles Race (St. Pat’s 5K, 21:31, 6:56 Pace, 1st Age Group)
Total: 31.1 Miles
