7 Mile Run - 7:45 pace. My hip felt fine as I started but got a little sore halfway through the run. Then, throughout the day, it got more and more sore until I went to bed. This morning (Monday) it felt a little better, but not good enough to run.

Today was a PERFECT day to run...but I couldn't run :-(

59 degrees, 30% humidity, calm, clear .... WOW...!!!

The problem is my hip is still hurting. After my run on Sunday I could hardly walk without limping. It's really weird becaues it feels like what a hip flexor sould feel like (even though I've never had a hip flexor). The pain is actually on the outside and top part of my hip bone. It doesn't hurt to raise my leg it hurts when I put weight on it.

This morning I biked, since biking doesn't hurt my hip at all. 59 degrees and 30% humidity is too cold to bike though. When I was finished with the 29.5 mile ride my feet had turned completly white and felt like stumps. This Raynaud's Disease is the pits!

Revelation 3:16

So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.

Cycled 40 miles with San Marcos Cycling Friends. There was a group of about 12 riders today. All were strong so we averaged 19 mph over the 40 miles. This includes about 4 miles fairly slow (in town) with a lot of lights, turns and traffic.

Psalm 68:17

17 When you, Lord God, appeared
    to your people[a] at Sinai,
    you came with thousands
    of mighty chariots.
