Running pains

I gave myself a silent goal of getting out and running during the week this week. I didn’t say anything about it anywhere, because recently I’ve had such bad luck every time I set myself a running goal. I had mentally prepared myself to get up with the first alarm (we have three), get into my running gear and go. But it was still dark out. I’d forgotten about the clocks shifting forward, and I was not mentally prepared to do an early morning run in the dark. So I decided to run home from Keele station instead.

I didn’t want my poor Dave to have to carry my lap top home (in addition to my purse and my during the day clothes), so left it at home. I got so much done at work yesterday – I took 2 sets of slide pictures (more than 150 total), and I ran 2 QPCRs. And I know that part of the reason so much got done was that I had no computer to distract me.

Anyhow, on the way home, I got off at Keele, had to wait a bit for my garmin to catch the satellites, and away I went. I felt that I got really tired about 2km in, and looking at the splits, my first km was sub 6min, and had an uphill. This is the first sub 6 split I’ve had that isn’t downhill, so I was happy about that, but I think it was a bit more than I should have. I got stopped at one light, and even so, made it home before Dave did. But only because he was in the grocery store picking up potatoes for dinner.

So I felt fabulous all evening yesterday, but when I got out of bed today, I noticed a pain deep in my left hip. I’m not sure if I slept on it funny, or if it’s from the run, but just sitting here, I can feel it. I really hope I didn’t over do anything yesterday, cause that was NOT the point. I’ll talk to some people and see what’s up. Hopefully I can just stretch it out.

Distance: 4.0km
