PM: 6.4 miles, averaged 10:05. HR 145.

It was very slow going in the snow and slush even with the spikes on.

Having a rough time mentally still. Not sure what it is. I really think we need to move, but it will likely be another year before we can buy a house.

Night: 4 miles in 40' on the treadmill at 11:20. HR 139.

Left campus tired and took a nap. Didn't get too ambitious and thought I'd run after dinner (which I never end up doing). Fell into a deep funk and layer around between the chair and bed. Worked up some ambition and went to our gym.

About 36' in my hip went from sore to slightly painful and unbalanced. Had to stop. It's been many years since I've had to stop a run for pain. I'm hoping it's just the treadmill but I know there is an underlying issue (recurring for about 4 years). I'll work it out.

Off.

My hip didn't bother me walking around. I canceled meetings I had for the day and spent much of the day in bed. I planned to go to Planet Fitness to jump on the StairMaster as I think that will be doable and it's the best cardio equipment when you can't run on the treadmill. However, that didn't happen. I'll try tomorrow.

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.

PM: 15' on the treadmill + 65' on the StairMaster 

Jogged on the treadmill but hip locked up. It hurts but the pain isn't searing. It's not right though. Not sure if it's the treadmill or not as I haven't run outside since the issue occurred. My balance is definitely different on the treadmill. Hit the StairMaster and things felt fine. 

It's another injury, but I can exercise and that's why I got into this running business in the first place. I'll continue as I have and figure the issue out. It's not from nowhere, so I'm not frustrated.

30' of walking @ 15% incline, 15' of running progression from 6.0-9.0 in 2' intervals, 15' of walking at 15%

Hip presented no issues, but I stopped at 15' just to be sure.
