Went to Kenny @ Space about the sore right hip. Muscles over the top have felt really tight for years, last causing me serious trouble at the end of 2012 when I had to take 6 weeks off and seeming at risk of a flare up again. Half-baked stretching over that time hasn't helped so Kenny gave me two strengthening exercises with an elastic band - both sort of souped up clams while standing. I'm gradually working my way through every known postural muscle indirectly useful for running and finding they are all a bit weak and I need to strengthen them or something gets injured when I try to put some effort in. I mentioned the iron supplements (which are working great) and Kenny pointed out that if supplements are actually helping I'm not eating properly.

Running 1:03:41 [3] 11.7 km (5:27 / km) +184m 5:03 / km
weight:81.6kg shoes: Blue Ravenna 8's #2

Easy tarmac miles in the evening. Achilles tendons sore for second half. Some shooting pains in left knee (tape off after being on for 3 days) which made me take it very easy for the first half. Not feeling too bad all considering.

65km / 2 / 15 km / H / Feeling OK
51km / 2 / 13 km / Easy / Feeling good
63km / 2 / 15km / (M/H) Feeling good

Another easy recovery run. Still feeling some "day per mile of race" effects of the weekend. Achilles have settled down again recently but left knee is bothering.
