2 Mile Run - Pain Free ... !!!

This is the first run in 9 weeks that I did not have a pain when running. Now that I'm finished I can only feel a slight twinge in my hip. I hope  this is the end of the pain and the beginning of the running!

It was even a decient pace at 7:00 miles :-)

Added 21 miles cycling in the evening (17-18 mph).

2 more miles pain free! After my 2 mile run on Monday my hip started to hurt a little but not nearly as bad as it had before. Right now, a couple of hours after this run, it feels pretty good.

I was concerned about my fitness, thinking that these 2 miles runs were too hard, but after looking back at some similar runs I realized that I'm not that far off what I was running before. For some reason I was thinking a 7:00 pace was supposed to be easy for me :-)

2 Mile run this morning. I was going to get up and ride my bike but I just didn't feel like it. My hip felt good, no pain when I run but I can still feel a twinge every now and then when I move in some ways.

Psalm 37:7

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!

Biked today although I believe I could have run. My hip feel pretty good after 3 short runs this week. I was not really excited about biking this morning as it was 63 degrees (cold for me). I just couldn't seem to push myself much.

I'm leaving tomorrow for a business trip to Germany for five days so I won't be logging any miles unless I can get on a TM a couple of days.
