Couldn't get on a treadmill until almost the time Megan was ready to go. I will likley resume running tomorrow if I am feeling okay.

PM: 6 miles on the treadmill in 60' (HR 153) + 15' StairMaster (HR 149)

Hip was pretty solid. No pain, but a bit of instability at times. Overall much better. Did some captain's chair work between activities.

RHR 47 according to my Garmin. I'll feel better when I am back in the lower 40s or under, but I imagine this is healthier than a good deal of Americans my age. Need to lose about 10 pounds too.

PM: 6.4 miles in 60'. HR 162.

Started a workout but pulled it. Too hard to gauge effort at this point in a hot gym. I finish out my 60' with some strides. I'm going to leave structured training until I can get into a solid patten of everyday running and get my mojo back.

Hip quite solid, even better than yesterday. Trying to line up a physical so I can get a PT referral to get some work done to fix the underlying issue.

PM: 7.3 very slow miles in 80' on the treadmill. HR 147.

This was so slow, but it felt like a very comfortable easy effort. Felt very good after mood wise.

8.700.000.000.008.70

PM: 8.7 miles in 80' on the treadmill. HR 157.

10' @ 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, then 5' @ 8.0 and 8.5, then 20' @ 6.0

7.5 felt like marathon effort. 8.5 was pushing deep threshhold to 5k.

Hip very solid to mostly normal. Felt good after. Just need to get the exercise level up enough to rebalance the chemicals in my brain.

We are on break, so I will likely put in some extra exercise minutes, probably just some easy crosstraining after 60'-80' of running.
