After my 45 miles on the bike yesterday I decided to run a little easier today than originally planned. I ran the small loop with a little warm-up to start and 1/2 mile cool down at the end. Each mile I would run easy most of the way but with a couple of sprints where I would run fairly hard (between telephone poles). My hip (butt side) is a little tinder but that's a typicle tinderness I have had before the major hip issue.

1 Samuel 17:48,49
 48 The Philistine got up and moved closer to attack David, and David ran quickly to the front line to face him. 49 David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone. He slung it, and it hit the Philistine on his forehead. The stone penetrated his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

Solid run, that is your longest in a while right?

From I Just Run on Thu, Oct 06, 2011 at 16:17:22 from 67.79.11.242

Yes but only by 1/2 mile and that was warm-up and cool-down...I ran 7:37 @ 81 HR on 9/28 with really no warm-up or cool-down.

From JG on Thu, Oct 06, 2011 at 16:26:17 from 71.59.27.33

The warmup and cooldown are good! I used to skip over them all the time, but I think they help stay injury free and recover faster. Keep building slowly, you'll be back in no time!

I went to Luke's Locker (huge running store in Austin) today and bought a new pair of shoes (already forgot the brand) but the people there are all supposed to be trained in sizing/fitting shoes. I went through a whole series of measurments and running test to find the right fit. At the end of all that the guy really quized me on streatching, warm-up and cool-down. I had to admit that I don't do much of either. I'm not really very smart or disiplined when it comes to things you should do regarding to running...I Just Run...I need to form some new habits!!!

I have the same problem. I get up and run. When I get back I shower and drink a soda! Bad habit!

Nice run - it's more fun when the scenery changes huh?
