Wed- 6 miles easy. This was my first real run since the marathon. Everything felt great, but around two miles in my hip flexor became really sore while running up a longer hill. I stopped and took some time to stretch, but found that I don't know a single stretch for my hip flexor. I guess it's never been sore before either though. Anyway I kept running, and felt pretty good besides the hip. I felt that for the rest of the run and by the finish I felt like I couldn't walk again. Feels better now an hour later though, so we will see how tomorrow goes.

Thurs-0 I meant to run this day but wound up staying late at work and just not having time.
OK this week sucked for running. Early in the week I figured I had a whole week to run and so I didn't stress about getting runs in especially because Abbey was waiting 10 days from the marathon to start up again. Then I had three days that I ended up working unexpected doubles which made it impossible for me to get my runs in. I know that I would have had another 20 miles this week if it weren't for work, but I am getting nervous that if I don't get my ass moving next week, that I'll wind up taking the whole winter off again. I can not do this, starting from scratch every spring makes me look and feel like an idiot, so here's hoping next week goes much better.
