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.

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.

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.

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.

Distance: 9 mi.
Easy run in the Glover trails from George's house. The trails were a little bit sloppy, but we got in a decent effort. And I raced George at the end... We're still waiting for the determination from FAT timing.
