Day Off

Hip flexor and throat soreness returns. Frustrating, but I am trying to focus on rest and feeling good for the next two weeks until I have a real training plan.

Amherst Trails

Time: 52:25
Distance: 7.5

I was finally feeling decent and ready to sweat it out. It has been annoying to be in Amherst the last few days and not get in a good run, so I went right to some of the trails around the Bike Path and Amherst College. I even jumped in the river near Stanley Street.

I was feeling very positive and my lungs weren't too congested, which was nice. My left hip flexor was again worse than I would've liked it, but I did stretch it out well after the run. I'm assuming everything is no faster than 7:00 right now. I timed the first mile in months for the last bit of this run and (admittedly picking up the pace a little bit) ran just under 6:30.

Ten Miles

Time: 67:45
Distance: 10 mi.

I ran by my new digs at Brookings on Massachusetts Avenue near Dupont

Back at it and feeling positive. My left hip flexor was more sore than I would've liked, but I was happy overall. I ran down through Rock Creek Park and popped out in the city to run through Dupont Circle and back up Florida and 16th Ave. In order to get a full 10 miles, which was my goal for the run, I added on a bit to Spring Road.

Day Off

A torrential downpour and lightning storm took me out of the game for the one time I would have been able to run today. I did get in a good massage with Terrel Hale, though, which will hopefully help my lingering hip flexor (and hamstring) issues.
