PM: 65' easy to moderate to uptempo and then 5k effort on the StairMaster. HR 151.

Didn't run today but went to Planet Fitness and it was the thing to do. I jog at cross walks and parking lots for a few steps today and my hip felt fine. I likely will be sore tomorrow as this is easily the longest StairMaster session I have done. It's easily my favorite cross training.

Did a light session of captain's chair core stuff. Hip strangely (thankully) offering no complaints.

Feeling better today. Phew. That was rough for a bit.

Glad you are feeling better. Hope the weather improves soon to help get out of the winter funk.

More snow tonight. I used to just run through anything but I find it harder now. Is it my location or am I getting old :-) ? I think it's been 4 years since I've had a real winter, so I'm probably just readapting.
