Day Five

Today was my 3 mile long run.  I wasn't able to finish running it all because my hip started to twinge a little more than I liked, but I did run 98% and my total finish time (even with walking) was 33 minutes.

Last October I tore all the muscles in my right hip while training for a half marathon.  I went through 4 weeks of physical therapy and didn't do much running after that - until now.  While I hate to make excuses, I also am very careful about how hard I push myself.  I don't want to go through that again.  It can take up to 6 months for an injury like that to completely heal.  So I am motivated, yet cautious.

Now I have the rest of the weekend to relax and enjoy.  No running or blogging tomorrow.  Monday it will begin again.
