I had a good run yesterday. Unfortunately I had a little hip pain as I ran, but it was the first time I’ve run 2 days in a row in a long time. The pain was just sharp jabs – about 3 in a period of a couple of minutes. So I kept running. I feel fine today. In total, I ran 4 miles. To break it up a little, I run 3 miles, walked a bit and then the forth. Good times.
I think TJ and I are going to run the Magic City 5K on Sunday. Assuming I can keep healthy, I would like to run a race. I haven’t run anything since my marathon in early September. I really enjoy running more after a race. I will not be looking to PR since nothing would be worse for my hip than to run as hard as I can for 3.1 miles, but I really want to go for the experience. The race is in downtown Birmingham. We last ran downtown was during the Mercedes half marathon last February.
So with this race I will feel like my running is beginning to get back on track. With the Mercedes Half Marathon next February, I’ll have to begin training soon. I haven’t run more than 5 miles at one time in months. Last year I ran the half in 1:44 and I’d really like to beat that this year if possible.
It is nice to have something to write about again. Running is fun, walking is boring. I hope I never get hurt again. 🙂
