I actually got up early on a Monday morning and went for a run, instead of playing basketball. I was even thinking of doing some Pah Tempe Hill repeats, but while warming up I just didn't feel very good. Legs and hips still sore from the longer run Saturday, so I just did an easy 5 miles, maybe tonight or tomorrow I'll do some hill stuff. Back to school today, not nearly as excited as when I was a young kid.

Not a very good workout.  I did a 3 mile warm-up, then did 4xPah Tempe hill repeats.

1-2:13 felt decent

2-2:14 legs dead

3-2:14 was really hurting here, but decided to attempt one more

4-2:19 struggled from the beginning on this one.  Threw-up afterward, but really didn't have much to throw up since I hadn't eaten since lunch.

Only did 1 mile for a cool-down.

I'm really feeling down after this workout.  My hip is always hurting and I don't feel that motivated to train right now. 

Maybe I just need to eat some dinner and get to bed.

Rode bike to school this morning, legs and hips still feeling sore. Rode bike home, then did a short 3 mile run around La Verkin. We have back to school night tonight, but I'm planning on doing a few more miles after that. Still dealing with hip pain.

Did 4.5 run tonight up past the substation. Enjoyable run tonight, even with nagging hip.

Another morning of feeling pain and discomfort when I got up. Rode bike to work again.  Took a longer route on my way home from work.  Don't plan on running any today, see if the hip feels any better tomorrow.

Really good run for me this afternoon. In fact part of the run would rank right up there with some of the most enjoyable things I've done this summer. I've been struggling all week with hip problems and I wasn't going to run very far this afternoon. However, with it being overcast and the temp's not too bad I headed the La Verkin Twist and made my way to the Overlook. Climbing the hills were a bit of a challenge, but I actually felt pretty good. After a brief stop at the top, I headed back down, this is when it got fun, a huge down pour of rain made the run back down into La Verkin very nice. It has been a long time, since I've ran in the pouring rain (something I really enjoy), so it was nice this afternoon. I ran 3 miles at Tinman tempo pace. Average was 7:45, not bad with quite a few hill climbs.

25 mile bike ride this morning, with the scouts. We went out around Sand Hollow. My legs and butt are really feeling it now. Hope to get in some miles running tonight. We'll see how the day goes.
