Saturday Sep 24 #

9 AM

Moderate running (Moderate with speed.v) 41:25 [3] 7.0 mi (5:55 / mi)

Decided to run how I felt this morning but introduce speed variations if the hip was ok. It was and felt pretty good.

Standard route, beehive, macron, A6, crown lane, crown, lever park, dry field lane, to millstone.

Hip felt fine on the speed variations and was averaging my 5k pace and felt comfortable.

5 AM

Easy running (Easy running) 42:06 [2] 6.0 mi (7:01 / mi)

Easy running

Different to the plan due to a really tight hi/glute causing a little discomfort.

Decided to run easy and ease in to a run this morning and see how the hip/glute reacts.

ran standard route beehive, macron, A6, crown lane, crown and home.

felt ok, little discomfort felt when running on any down hills, just feels like discomfort form a niggle not an injury as such. I think it may be piriformis, ive had it before when I first came back and generally can resolve it through stretching. Will keep my eye on it and run easy again tonight and see how it is.
