It's been almost a week since I ran, but, my diet is excellent, the hip is improving, and I have tons of cases of groceries to move, stacking and unstacking, then 120 deliveries tomorrow. Enjoy your lunacy this full moon!

I'm glad to hear that your listening to your body and resting that hip. Good job on recognizing the diet changes you need to make and making the adjustments. I'll keep you in my thoughts, man.

Ran two miles but forgot to check the time before I started. I kept a good pace and stayed in the 160s HR range, slowing to walk a few steps when I'd slip over 170. I felt strong getting started and the hip only protested a tiny bit in the beginning. I enjoyed a couple of Sun salutations as a warm up and loved a walking lap after jogging 8. It felt like a "reward." I ran a couple of 50 yd strides on the 8th lap, which put me over 170 HR. I increased the time stretching, after the cool down walk, which felt great. I'm going to hang out at 2 miles until my hip is fully recovered. We delivered 1800 lbs of groceries to 120 apartments yesterday, with no a.c., so I sweat my clothes soaked for a couple of hours. It was certainly exercise. My diet is great, with decreased calories.

Have you tried a heating pad or something to warm up the hip in the morning or 15 mins or so before running? That might get the hip feeling a little better before putting stress on it. Also some type of compress at night might be another good idea. Oh well something to consider.

Hip resented the run a little, but not too bad.
Added Triphala to my daily regime, a standard Ayurvedic herbal powdered mix. ("3 fruits")
Thanks for the support folks, which has been important to my getting off to a good start.

Ran 2 mls in 22 min, slowing as much as I could to try and keep the HR under 160. The hip only protested for the first half lap. Yesterday I barely noticed the hip injury. Enjoyed a ninth "victory lap" walk to cool down, then did maybe 10 min of stretches. Did a few minutes of stretches before the run too.

The hip is complaining about yesterday's run. I'm going to the chiro tomorrow and will probably skip my scheduled run. I need to be DONE with this hip thing and may take a few days to do that if needed.

The chiro canceled yesterday. I didn't run and the hip is getting better. I may not try until I'm close to 100%.

Tomorrow will again be a week since I ran. The hip isn't healed. I've been eating more late at night. I'm over my eyeballs in work to do. Tomorrow I turn 49!

It's frustrating, and I'll admit, I don't always follow my own advice, but sometimes you just have to stay off it completely and let your body do its thing. I struggled for months with my hip flexor and it only healed entirely when I got sick and couldn't run for three weeks. I haven't had a problem with it since. It's so hard, but try to be patient. :)

Thanks Pamela. I don't have a reason to not do yoga or weight train, though. I should at least be working on my cascading gut!

Thank you very much for the BD wishes. I think my sisters are getting me the scale I covet, with fat/water/bone %. My daughter bought me a Whole Foods card. (She knows me best)
