Discussion: Colorado, driving and hips

James and I went 'home' to the farm last week...I drove the 160 miles and my left hip began bothering me at least by halfway...I rubbed it and pressed on it in a few places as best i could and that actually seemed to help...especially the pressing hard on a spot on my butt/hip and driving.

Long drive to Colorado. 10 min pace at that altitude is amazing! Good luck in 2018. My only goal is to do what I can do day by day. Right now I don't think I can run without stopping for awhile, but just to be able to do the trot/jogging feels good and I've tried to put in a few bursts of 20 to 30 yards as I get loosened up.

Enjoy the trip.

Thanks... back home now. Cold as hell--20below.
For the first time, I felt like I needed to walk on some of the steeper sections of trail/road. Gettin' old.

Cant believe your trip was so short...for someone getting old you made a pretty tough driving trip.

20 below...that was kinda the nightly norm the 3 winters I was there in HS...69-72...I would never have believed I could run up there if I had not done it...if that makes sense...same as the times I ran compared to now...If I had not walked on at OU and hooked up with Greg I would never have run as fast as I did unless I had came across some other training situation such as moving to New Zealand and being trained by Lydiard.

Have a cold so the cold seems even worse. Penetrates to my bone marrow.

Good luck with the weather up there.
