Hip definitely hurting even after a shorter run. I'm not bothered too much. I've caught the running bug enough to run through the discomfort. Otherwise mood is good. Taken tablets.

Man, take care of your hips! They don't get better; they get worse. Start doing exercises when you can. It will make a huge difference! I can't tell you how many runner friends I know who are derailed due to hip injuries getting worse!

I think I read about this. Something about it's American school, based in England with English actors... and it's about as realistic as my cat flying to Mars to be head butcher on a rat meat farm inside a big dome. Have I got the right show?

Lucky you, Manda (I guess). We got close to two feet. But it fell at a good time, over a holiday weekend when I didn't really have anywhere to be. I knew it was coming, so planned to stay home and stay warm. It's so stinking cold!

Yeah, it was bonkers here. They were calling for over a foot but it was rain all day right up til evening & then it turned to ice. BF & I liked keeping an update through the weather app. The excepted snowfall total keep decreasing as time passed...

I had so many plans today, but instead got sick and spent the day in bed. Did go grocery shopping in the evening though. Not eating and puking for the whole day has made me remember something:

this is how I felt when I wasn't eating right. No energy, lightheaded, unable to enjoy movement. All day every day. I wouldn't want to feel that way ever again (not until I grow old anyway), even if it makes me look great.

He said I was catastrophising. He just said don't over do it. He also said I don't move my body enough when I run, so he had me trying to move differently when walking. It felt very unnatural... I felt awkward and useless...

Priority now is flexibility and glutes. Nothing like the rewarding endorphins after a l9t of stretching than I get after a run... This is going to be tough.
