two weeks ago, while slinging concrete, i popped something in my right hip, and it hurt. that pain went away, and i was able to run the runs listed here without ANY trouble.
then this past Sat, while in Boston, it popped again.
yesterday, it stiffened right up and i couldn't even lift the leg to get it up a stair step. i iced it, and took a bunch of motrin when i got home. this morningn it is much better. sore, but i have full ROM of my right leg.

oh, forgot to mention that around 5pm, as i was walking across the ICU, it popped again, and felt BETTER.

ran again today: that makes twice this week! i don't want to get ahead of myself, but i think that i will be able to put in a run on Friday, too!

this afternoon, while M was at some after school meetings, I ran the Hazen trail.

Distance: 5km
Time: 30:59
Monthly Goal: 16.3/50

it is about time

time to spare. time to run. time to be out there.
last night i took some.
ran along the AT, starting at the AT trailhead on Elm St. in Norwich, and turning around at the Happy Hill shelter. Took Riley with me, and we had a good run. A bit slower than I had figured, but all in all a good run in the woods. I will use it as my 10K trail run yardstick for 2009.

Distance: 11.3k (7m)
Time: 1:20:ish
Monthly Goal: 50k
