Glute was feeling good, it hurt slightly more than it did on Saturday but still felt a lot better than it has been. Nate said that if the warmups felt good I could run the form mile (I'm gonna start counting it as miles until I can get back to full miles) and if that felt good then I could go out and do 4ish miles like I did Saturday. After the mile on the turf it was borderline on whether I should keep running or not. I opted for not because I feel like with this I need to be more cautious. Told Nate about my slight increase in pain and he told me not to run anymore anway, so we're on the same page. Dang it butt, work with me here!

Pool: 12 x 75 second at 80-90%, 2 minutes rest. Basically mimicking the 400 workout the rest of the team did today. Worked hard, had a good time. The pool's not so bad, actually. It's nice to have a group doing it with set workouts, even if that group is small. Today it was Jake, Sean, Bryan and I.

Did warmups and half of the form mile, hip was hurting more than yesterday. Grrrrr. Patrick says I'm just not even going to run until Thursday even if it feels good, just going to stick to the pool. And of course, if it still hurts I'm not running.

Pool: 6 x 5 minutes at 80%, 45 seconds rest. 5 minutes warmup and cool down.

I've been having trouble sleeping this week, I dunno what's up. Can't seem to fall asleep. My mind just keeps racing and next thing I know it's 3am.  

Pool: 5 minutes warmup, 20 minutes at 80%, 10 minutes at 60%, 10 minutes at 80%. 5 minutes cool down.

Pool: 5 minutes warmup, 35 minutes at 60%, 5 minutes cool down. Either missed the memo that there was no official pool practice or was the only one to show up... it's cool though. It's almost fall break so... that's probably it.

In class today I felt a random sharp pain in the side of hip, lasted 2 seconds then went away. Thought maybe I just sat weird and triggered it, so I adjusted. Pain kept coming back for the last 10-15 minutes of class, each time sharp pain lasting 1-2 seconds and 30seconds to 2 minutes between each one. Talk about hard to focus, lol. Continued for about a half hour. Really wierd, talked to Nate about it and since it's not shooting down my leg or anything and just is staying in that spot we're just gonna be mindful of it and see how it feels tomorrow. It was only for that half hour, until I heated it and went to the pool. Now it's fine. Weird. But hopefully I can try running tomorrow, it's up to Patrick though so we'll see.

Patrick said I could run 3 miles today!! Hip feels good. I did a lot of bending over and repeated lifting at work yesterday so I'm thinking that caused my hip to tighten up and give me that weird pain. But it felt fine today! Little bit of pain the first half mile but a mile in and on I didn't feel it at all. Patrick wants me to still take tomorrow off and then on Monday if it's still felling good I can do another 3 miles :) Averaged 7:13 today. Can tell my fitness has been affected by not running, it was more difficult than it should've been but it still felt good to get out and run.

Wasn’t going to run, wasn’t planning on it. But then I took penny on a “walk,” and she was pulling on the leash so hard it was choking her, so I gave in and ran with her. Dogs, what can you do? Hip was hurting a little but not too bad.
