I rested Sunday, but got right back at it yesterday. Just 4 easy miles down my road. I hope no one saw me bc I'm sure I looked like a friggin' idiot! My hip flexors only allow for baby steps. I ran 5 today, and felt better, but still not quite normal. Guess that's what I get for running 15.5 miles of tough trails completely unprepared!!

HSP Kicked My Butt!!
Hog's Hunt was the first time I had run at the park in FOREVER!! HSP trails are way different than my trails, and they did one helluva number on my back and hips. I think some of the problems with my back are from the way I was using my arms....holding them all weird to help me balance as I attempted to jump roots and stumps. Then there was all the loose sand. I don't remember the park being THAT sandy! Up hill in loose sand is like running in a hamster wheel...and that is what I am blaming the hip trouble on.
