      Crossing my fingers after this one. The hip hurt right out of the gate but it loosened up really fast (about 1/4 mile) and then the level of pain was mild but consistent. While it really didn't hurt badly, when I hit six I had noticed that my pace had seriously dropped off and that the pain was causing me a different kind of exhaustion, so I stopped. So far it's feeling very good. Tomorrow...

      This was not at all a gratifying run. I was hopeful that having taken three days off would make my leg feel better. But, while my hamstring was indeed much better, my hip, which had been a really minor annoyance, suddenly flared into a major problem. Okay, deep breath, try again tomorrow and see how things go. I can always stop right after I start if the pain presents right away...

      The hamstring is telegraphing into the hip, get a doctor appointment, 20.00 copay, and say, I want to see a physical therapist, just my 2 cents hopen it gets better fast

      Thanks, guys. I think the real problem is actually my hip, not my hamstring. That seems to be completely fine now. I suspect I strained it while compensating for the more limited range of motion in my hip due to the pain there. That's a recurring problem that always goes away as soon as marathon training is over. We'll see what tomorrow brings...

      This was a test of my left hamstring. It was definitely tight and it was very mildly painful to run on for the first mile or so, and then on downhill slopes the rest of the way. Once I stopped running, the stiffness and pain were completely gone, so I hope I'm good to work through it now. Crossing my fingers!

      My legs were hurting pretty badly right from the start with this one, particularly my left hamstring. So by the 10th mile I decided I better cut it short. I'm hoping (and I think this is the case) that it was just a case of overdoing. I'll try an easy run either tomorrow or Tuesday and then go long on Wednesday if all feels right. Taking advantage of the last couple of weeks of summer break!

      ouch, Do the hamstring stretch in the door way with one leg up in the air, and your butt up against the bottom, try to get you leg to go flat, (with your shoe on). Keep the other leg flat on the floor. Hamstring pain is caused by the leg not flattening(fully straightening out) and this causes an in-balance in your stride. I had a bad hamstring problem for 1.5 years, and this exercise cured it in one week. Thanks!

      This run was a test of my ankle. It was hurting badly enough that I had trouble walking on it Sunday. However, other than the feeling of a very slight swelling yesterday, the pain was completely gone. Some Google searches lead me to think my shoelaces were too tight. I loosened them, ran 6, and all was good!

      This turned out to be a fun run.

Plus I hit negative splits on all but the next to the last interval, which had lots of uphill in it...

      The second half of this run was really fun. I started out feeling pretty stiff but when I hit 1.5 miles I was annoyed to hear I was running at a 9:30 pace. Kicked it up and ended up doing the last two at 8:37 and 8:31. So now I guess I know why I've been running so slow - it's because I've been running slow!!!
