I felt my hip yesterday.
I ran 4.5 miles and it was cold. In fact just one day before TJ and I were talking about how hot it was as we ran. But yesterday, windchill was below freezing and I had all my winter garb on.
My hip hurts when I am not running relaxed. I can feel pain, tell myself to relax, and within seconds the pain has subsided. I also think it is worse in the cold. Holding my body stiff as I run into wind and cold that I thought had passed for another year.
All in all it was a good run. By the time it was over, I felt as if I had settled into it and could run more, but decided I didn’t want to take a chance of hurting myself so I stopped. This was the second run after my sickness. I can still feel it in my chest some, but I am definitely on the mend.
3 more runs before I take another week off. Just some personal stuff I need to do. Then on with training for my April half marathon.
Life is good.
