      question: What would happen if on a day like today when you wanted to run, but thought better of it, you just went out for a walk and ran a little, really slow. like embarrassingly slow ... ??? :)

      It was hot here today! And that sounds like an amusing little cluster of bike commuters! Now, do NOT go running. Please. I want you to get ALL WELL and be REALLY FAST again, not suffering for ages and complaining etc.

      Nice commuting, except for the crazy truck driver and bad cyclist! I also like to see riders representing properly, but it burns me that the drivers complain about cyclists not following every rule, when that driver speeds, rolls through stop signs, fails to yield, tailgates, etc, etc, etc. Rant over.

      @Vern - ohyes!yes!yes! what's that phrase: people in glass houses......I just wish *everyone* would do what they're supposed to do! if they did it would be much safer out there. @Pierre- i have the same thoughts/feelings, so i am trying to be good here. thankfully i am not training anyway, so it's easier to feel less guilty about not running. ;)

      Good for you, having some fun planning the trip! I'm the kind of person who just makes decisions without worrying if they're always the perfect decision. So I get planning done in short order and have it out of the way. But you have complications! With a child to also accommodate.

      I've had that recently too, do some leg raise exercises to strengthen the hip a bit. Not familiar with the things you mentioned above so not sure if you are already doing them :)

      @Steve -that's *exactly* how it feels. i think it's probably bursitis. i'll give it some rest...it seems to come and go in the last few months...might talk to the doctor, apparently they can drain some fluid? i dunno. sounds icky. :P

      Nice easy miles today! Sometimes you do need a break from running...to regain the love of running again. I totally understand! Glad your "bike love" is still there to give you an outlet for now.

      Good for you. Sounds well-earned. So enjoy your trip and earn back some run love. Trails are the best therapy for that. And, a little break from it too. Absence makes the heart grow fonder? ;)

      Didn't realize you were going through this. I have a similar post-exercise cough (mostly after tough efforts in cooler air), that I've assumed is exercise induced asthma. The shortness of breath thing sounds weird. Good on you for getting it looked at. Wish you had a better explanation, but at least your tests are normal and you can let go of big hairy amounts of concern. Stress can do funny things to your body. Maybe a little meditation or breathing technique or something?
