Hip pain update!

Today's workout - 3.1 miles @ 10:21 pace.

When I got out of  bed I had 0 pain. This is the first time in a week and a half I've had no pain upon waking. YAY! Once I started moving around a bit I could feel some twinges and aches. But, I foam rolled my IT bands and did some light yoga warm up stretches before heading to the gym.

Since it is MAY, i figured i could ditch the hoodie on the way to the gym, even though it was raining. There's a decision I regret. It was maybe 40 and pouring at 545am. BRRR! I already locked the door though, so I "ran" the whole 5 feet to my car and turned on the heat.

I did my normal warm up and stretches at the gym, pounded out 3.1 miles and *made sure to stretch after* That is where all this nonsense came from, I'm sure of it. Call it busy, or lazy, or whatever. But the last few weeks I have NOT taken the time to stretch or foam roll after running. BAD! I've really only done it after long runs, but hello! all runs need *some* recovery.

At home I did a little more yoga - actually ate breakfast (omg!) and went off to work with only the slightest occasional twinge :) more yoga stretches and foam rolling tonight. Hopefully, I'm putting this issue to bed. I'm still hitting up fleet feet for new shoes on friday though. These suckers have at LEAST 350 miles on them!

I was thinking this morning about how I wish I had more compression ware, and lo-and-behold, Miss Zippy is giving away some compression sleeves! Check it out :)
