AM - 2.5 PV.  Long walk with Twix then a short run.  But... it was longer than I have gone in a month and a half.  Just did laps around the school so I could stop when the hip started hurting.  At first I was very timid and could feel the tightness and soreness, but I tried to relax and let myself run through it a little.  Got up to nearly 20 mins without any pain - still the usual soreness, but no pain.  Did some extra yoga poses that really help hit the hip and hopefully that keeps it loose (did them yesterday as well - maybe that helped contribute to being able to go a little more today).  Will be able to hopefully go about the same tomorrow, but I won't push it further until I continue to see progress.  Abs after.  (Peg NOP 239)

AM - 1 Neighborhood.  Long walk with Twix with the addition of a short run.  Still so hesitant about running.  Same usual soreness and tightness, but no searing pain.  An athlete of mine has the exact same pains as me and he was diagnosed by a doc and xrays as having a fracture on his hip from the muscle tearing away from the bone.  Self-diagnosis are usually not the way to go, but I am guessing that is what happened to me.  I had 5 weeks off and am slowly working back.  The doc told him 6 weeks off, so that would fit close to my timeline (I could probably use a few more weeks, and I will if I feel any real pain again, but until then I'll keep slowly putting a little in).  Ended with weights and abs.  (Peg green 479.5)

AM - 3.5 track.  Long walk with Twix.  Then practice a little earlier because a few kids have some things this afternoon.  Did some abs why they warmed.  Then ran some laps with Robs while they did the workout.  Focusing on the kids let me not think about my own "fears" about my hip and just relax and run.  Looked at the watch and I was at 3.5 and decided that was awesome and also that I should be done.  No pain, even the tightness and soreness is disapating.  (Ravenna 451.5)

AM - 1 Neighborhood.  Long walk with Twix that we extended into a short run.  Felt a little hesitant last night about running because I was a little more sore, but this morning everything felt fine.  And I am starting to overcome some of the return from injury fear (a little).  Some positive stuff this week.  I'll see if I can go 20 or so minutes again tomorrow.  Weights and then abs.  (Levitate 284)

AM - 3.5 AC.  Long walk with Twix and then the first run back with the team in almost 7 weeks!  The only other time when I've had to take that long of a time off was my stress fracture 15+ years ago.  I was back to running sooner than this after my stroke.  But, it was great to back with the guys.  Still very nervous on pretty much every single step.  But there isn't pain, so I should keep confident.  (Peg NOP 242.5)

AM - 2 Neighborhood.  Short walk with Twix and then finished up the week with a couple more miles.  Should be pretty happy that things improved so much this week.  Will continue to add a little more miles through next week if all still feels well.  (Peg blue34 194)

AM - 3.5 AC.  Long walk with Twix and then practice.  Ran out with the team and flipped early.  Still feeling good.  No pain and really no tightness either.  On the way back I was a little more worried, because I was on my own and started thinking instead of just enjoying the run like the way out.  Abs.  (Peg NOP 246)

AM - Long walk with Twix.  Weights and abs.

afternoon - 4.75 GS. Very windy, so I cancelled the Relays. Joined the boys for a run. Maybe went a little too far because I could feel some tightness in the hip. So I stopped and chilled and lightly stretched while the guys went up the hill a few more minutes. (Peg blue34 198.75)

AM - Long walk with Twix.  Then abs while the team did their workout this morning in the wind.  

afternoon - 3.25 Bank Loop.  25mins with the guys who did their workout this morning.  Had a run in with a guy in a truck.  I don't know why people think it is so important to be jerks.  (Peg NOP 249.25)

AM - Long walk with Twix.  Then weights and abs.

afternoon - 5 Shoe Run. Felt decent. Kept the pace easy and the crew was fine with it - they’ve been working hard; hopefully they’ll all see some pay off.  Side note: coaching track is often a journey of frustration. I don’t know that I would be too sad if someone wanted to take over the head coaching responsibilities. (Ravenna 446.5)

AM - 2.5 AC.  Long walk with Twix.  Held down the minutes today and had a good run with Robs.  Wanted to run with the girls, but apparently they didn't want to run with us.  Yoga and abs.  (Levitate 286.5)

afternoon - 3 Twix.  Got a few miles in this afternoon after the track meet.  Ran while Elin rode her bike.  We took Twix's morning route, but didn't invite her along (I didn't want to have to deal with her and Elin if there was trouble with the bike, but maybe next time).  (Peg green 482.5)

morning - 8 Border Trails. Long walk with Twix and then practice out on the trails by the airport. Had a good run and got my longest run in 2 1/2 months. Hip held up well with just a little tightness. (Peg blue34 209.75)

morning - 8.5 Confluence. No walk with Twix - she is hurting from something and struggled on her walk last night. Took a bit longer for my achilles to warm up without the walk. Ran pretty well, but just not in great shape. So I flipped early and met up with some of the girls to finish up. (Glide 40.25)

AM - weights and abs.  Twix still has a hitch in her walk.  So although she wants to go out and walk, I am waiting at least today.

afternoon - 5.5 Foremaster.  Long hot miles and my allergies are killing me so I was extra wiped out.  (Levitate 293)

AM - long walk with Twix (she is struggling with some pain still - looked better yesterday, but this morning was tough).  Weights and abs.

afternoon - 6.25 Green Springs.  Very hot miles today.  However, other than the unfortunate death of a suicidal lizard at the foot of Cooper, it was a good run.  (Peg green 488.75)
