It has been a strange week.  I had planned on running up in SLC, but we had major car problems before we left and that got me down, the idea of a funeral got me down (with all that has happened to us the last few months), and my lower abs hurt enough to make me not want to even do anything.  All this combined to really bum me out.  So I didn't run and haven't run since.  Actually my abs are feeling a little better and I WANT to run a little (5ish) today which is something that I haven't wanted to do for what seems like forever - even though it has only been a week - so I'll try it.  I've decided I am going to cut back quite a bit until I get some enthusiasm back - that may be months or just a few days; I don't know.

afternoon - 5 Mall Run.  Not too bad of a run.  Started off with the usual aches and stiffness that should be expected after a little time off, but they all mostly worked their way out.  A touch of inner hip pain (hip flexor area) - I wonder if this is what is causing my lower ab stuff since it seems to radiate into that area.  Did some active strecthing for cool down.  (Cumulus blue 443.4)

evening - 7 Club run.  I guess the group is meeting earlier, because I missed them.  So I ran the usual run backwards thinking I might bump into them, but the must have done something else/more.  Anyway, the run was pretty decent.  Still an aching pain persisting in the right hip flexor.  Worked on my active stretching and am icing and ibo'ing.  (Stratus bee375.95)

afternoon - 6 Foremaster.  Easy run out by myself.  Same general hip/ab pain.  Ice/Ibo/drills/core stuff like usual.  (Landreth black 251.35)

Landreth Black Miles: 6.00
Total Distance

morning - 11 Junction/Coral Canyon w/ James.  Had a good little run talking about all sorts of stuff.  Same level of pain in hip/ab.  It seems to have really calmed down this week and is isolated to more of a surface muscle level pain in the inside hip/lower ab.  Usual drills and core/ice/ibo (Cumulus gold 54.9)

I started running again this week; that's about all that can be said about it.

Goals for next week: step it up a little if the injury can handle it.  I am going to try and hit some 10k training stuff this winter instead of the mileage approach I have used for awhile, but that will require pain free running as possible; we'll see what happens.
