I ran! I ran!

Yeah, big news, I know. This IS a running blog, after all. But, it's been a while since health and motivation combined to let me get out and run. (11 days, apparently. Jeez.) With an 8k race coming up this weekend, though, and a marathon the next weekend (more on that later), I thought I'd better get out for a few miles.

Basic little 5 mile loop. Felt pretty good. Hip solid, still snorting up some yummy phlegm, but seems to be subsiding. I'm pretty glad that my body seems to want to run again...



(Dunno what happened to my heart rate strap near the end there. No reason for my heart to spike to 200 bpm on the last easy downhill...)

Ooooh, Jealous! My back isn't letting me run, and it's making me nervous for that 8k on Sat... Glad you had a good solid run, and that your hip was participating!

Ahh, you'll do great on the 8k. Haven't decided if I'll stay with you yet... :)
