I took 3 weeks off and only did my physical therapy and it did wonders for my aching hip muscles. I had started back running too soon.
I have had a great last few days. 4 runs in 5 days. 4 miles on Tuesday, Wednesday off, Thursday 3 miles, Friday 4.5 miles, Saturday 7 miles on trail! I’m keeping everything really slow, short strides. 4 mph on treadmill and 13:00 min pace on road and 15:00 min pace on trail.
I am taking my anti-imflammatories and they are helping tremendously.
I signed up for Umstead 100 which is in April 2014. I am getting back into ultras 🙂
