This long weekend hill run is definitely not the reason my hip joint hurts when I run. The reason it hurts is the lack of proper running form and efficient running technique during the work week. I should keep doing the hill run on Saturday mornings. If anything, it makes me stronger. I should also do whatever I need to do to avoid sickness and injury during the work week, to make sure I get healthier and happier during the work week.
I started the run by moonlight. The moon was close to the zenith and a bit less than half full. My eyes adjusted, then I could see.

Tried to take it easy this week in order to avoid injury and sickness. After all, the main reason I run regularly is to be healthy.
Today I explored the boundaries of the area directly west of campus that's off limits to the general public.
On top of everything else, I am getting sick. I feel that the swimming workout I planned for today would only make me sicker, so I'm going to skip it. After all, for me, a major reason for my daily exercise routine is to be healthier. If it makes me less healthy on any given day, I shouldn't do it.
My music class is fantastic. I am learning a lot of the language that I need to know to talk about music intelligently. A great way to get my creative juices flowing.
running (sandy trails) 1:04:59 7.27 mi (8:56 / mi) +37m 8:48 / mi

right hip joint hurt. managed to keep to the true running technique (balls of the feet touch the ground first) through the run, though.
swimming (pool) 1:08:00  2.45 km (2.2 kph)
1600 m crawl, 400 m breaststroke, 450 m crawl. the 50 m pool was closed, so I swam in the 25 m one. twice as much pushing off the walls makes for significantly faster times. paid attention to engaging my legs more during crawl, which made for smoother, more efficient motion.
running 1:03:01  6.53 mi (9:39 / mi) +28m 9:32 / mi

I am going to skip the long hill run this week. My hip isn't feeling so good, and I do not want to associate that injury, caused by my failure to keep injury-free during the work week, with my fun weekend workout. I'll work on a healthier work-week, then hopefully come back healthier to the long hill run next weekend.
