Running LogDistance: 8 kilometers
Comments: And now for the second attempt. Most of yesterday I was post-run sore but there was an unsettling stiffness in the hip the whole day. Again, not outright pain and not enough to make me limp or anything, but certainly something.
I got out the door relatively early and did the warm-up jog to the Malencon. Again, there was the stiffness/soreness in the left hip. Enough to make me frustrated but not enough to be able to say if it was more than just general first-day-back stiffness.
At the park I stretched - I was pretty tight, overall - and then got into the run. I kept it very slow, even slower than yesterday. Again, no specific pain at all but I could tell there was something going on with the left hip.
I can't really say if this is 1)regular stiffness, 2) my brain going beserk or 3) an actual prelude to the type of agonizing fun that put me on the sidelines for two months. Again, I'll see how it feels tomorrow and make another try at running on Thursday.
