  1. walk
    Cool down 1.68 mi 00:23 13:35 pace

    Nice walk to cool down and to add a few miles that wouldn't irritate the hip too much.

  2. RUN
    Early morning 3.19 mi 00:34 10:36 pace

    Not sure what to do about my training
    Right now but wanted to get some miles in.

    Quick ride to get some air.

  4. I saw the PT yesterday about my hip. He says one of my legs is almost 3/4 inch longer than the other. WTH? Have any of you been told something similar? He recommended a shoe insert (which i am ne... read more

      Did he measure your legs or something? If you're hurt, cut back on the mileage now, and you'll be in much better shape when you're back on schedule.

      Most people's legs (and arms) are different lengths but that seems like a lot. Are you sure it's accurate? Either way, you need to get your hip healed. If you do your long run now and get injured, you are in a much worse position I think. As for the shoe insert goes, I have never used anything like that. I suppose you could try it to see if it seems to help.

    Put in a little more distance by walking. Was afraid to so to much with my hip acting up. I see the PT today. Hopefully he won't fuss at me for putting in a total of 5 miles today. As much as... read more

    Another evening ride 7.9 mi 00:42 11.3mph pace

    Decided to get out and get some air this evening. Took my son, Matt, with me. We had fun trying to run over grasshoppers. He is always fun to ride with. This was my fastest ride. Not sure if it ... read more

    Manic Monday 2.16 mi 00:23 10:52 pace

    Not sure if this was wise but I had to see how the hip would tolerate running. Went to track as doctor ordered. The track is one step up from the treadmill. Ugh! Went slow. Took several walk breaks... read more

      Nice job with the track tester. I used to hate just running on the track. That's why I did speed work whenever I was stuff on the track. It was a good distraction. Hopefully you'll be back on the roads soon. Keep getting that hip better!

    Ok, I know nothing about bikes...but I have never seen anything like this. Are any of you familiar with the type of bike? Can you tell me about it?

      Looks like a recumbent bike for disabled people, with the pedals and crank up front.

      I guess I've just never seen a bike like that. I can't imagine how one would start off riding with the pedals so high...

      SU, I took that picture in Hearne, Tx. I paid 3:39 for gas in Bryan the other day though. What are you paying?

      The cheapest place around here had it for $3.57 the other day, which was kind of a shock. The last time before that is definitely a $3.60s.

      Nice pedal work Patricia. Hope the injury is not bad. Is this related to the hip? I have been busy and not keeping up with everyone. Anyways sending prayers and +++vibes.
