North side - 3.25 miles, averaged 8:32. First time on the road since Oct. 25. I sounded like a moose running. Hip felt fine.

Took the last week off because I wanted to see if I could get this thing healed. Need to try to get some miles in before ~Christmas, which marks the beginning of the Boston buildup.

3.5 miles, averaged 8:28

I read Walter's post about a recent R2R2R venture and read a link he posted about his accident. I know Utah folks probably know about it, but I post it here for those who don't because rarely do I read something that I would call "inspiring" because I am often inspired in more mundane ways. But it is incredible.

Jefferson High School - 7.4 miles, averaged 8:10. Hip feels good. I even tested it by stubbing my toe and falling on it. Followed it up with my new favorite recovery snack: 2 slices of Ezekiel 4:9 toast, ~1/3 avocado, topped with Sriracha.

No run today. Stretching, core, and strength stuff in the evening. Plenty of triple lentil soup to cleanse the junk from my system. Nutrition is starting to get back on track. Think I might try more fish (generally don't do any meats at home). I absolutely love salmon.

Still eating when I am not hungry, so I need to get rid of some stress as well. Ho hum, as Bam might say.

Looking forward to actually using my Twitter account to track the gents running CIM tomorrow.

I generally slip and slide but I've seen a few Newton folks and Camille Herron use this method.
