In what form do you take your turmeric? I've been using it off and on for a couple of years. I make the "Golden Paste" and put it in food. Apparently, pepper and an oil halp you absorb it.

Those last 200 are getting there!

I just take a capsule.

My left butt cheek/hip joint bothered me the rest of the day. I had been able to run through it for 2 or 3 weeks where after running it did not feel worse and often it felt better than the slight tightness or ache at the beginning but halfway through my 4 mile cooldown it was bothering me feels better now but I may need to walk several days to be safe or turn running days into walk/jog.

This is the pattern on speed...I had gone to 2 sessions a week thanks to lighter workload due to retirement...once you have a setback you/I just wish to be able to do a regular workout...I'll experiment once I retire...I like the track stuff for the variety and also nostalgia of old days even tho it is shocking how much slower I am especially those first few reps when the only way I can get going is to just do the workokut...I'm not even in good enough shape to warm up.

I try to do little stride outs and they are pitiful...

Right now I just have to see if this is a minor set back or lingers on...if it lingers on then I will have to cut back on speed...such as do half or 3/4ths of what I have been doing even tho that is not much. Anything on the track is still quicker than my typical run of 11 min first mile unless its really early before 8 then it is more like 12 to 13 min...and averaging mostly over 10 min...

I was pleased that I kept getting faster and down where I was approaching 6 min pace even if just for half a lap...I bet it could be 2 months now before I can do 200's again...

Good run. I wished I had something like that trail!! I bet my legs and hip would hold out just fine. Its all the pavement pounding that wears on me. I run on grass some probably a mile a week or so...sometimes 2 miles.

Hip way better and in fact might be ok to run on but I had needed to rest for over a month had been awhile since any type of ache or pain or sickness had caused me to back off and I was feeling stale so I get double benefit out of this rest time.
