May Review

Distance: ~100 miles (yes, that's for the whole month)

Well keeping a log of running through pain 4-5 days per week was depressing. So I quit again for most of May. After this weekend, when I got in two 50+ minute runs with less hip flexor and hamstring pain than I have had since the marathon back in February, I have decided to keep myself more honest and get back to keeping myself honest.

Bryn Mawr

Time: 30:00

Easy morning run with Ozzie and Tushar from Tush's place in Bryn Mawr. A bit tired and dehydrated, but excited to head to Heps at Penn. Moderately tight, but nothing out of the ordinary these days.

Stretching: Umm...

Week In Review

Time: 138:41
Distance: ~20 mi.

Another 5 day running week. I am feeling some slight improvements in my hamstring and hip flexor.

Mt. Pleasant Loop

Time: 30:43

Easy loop dipping into RCP and around Mt. Pleasant. Felt okay, considering I was running early to miss the harder rain that hit the District later in the day.

Stretching: Hamstring stretches with the rope.

Midas Run

Time: 26:00

Morning run down to Midas near Mt. Vernon Square, where I had some break work done on the car yesterday. I felt much better than the morning run earlier this week, though I was still a bit tight.

No stretching, headed right to work.
