The last long run of August

Yesterday I did my 8 mile run in 1:26:57. There was a lot of fog until around 4.5 miles, so I felt a little like I was swimming. It was pretty gross. The roommate and I kept a good pace up to 6 miles. I was surprised at how fast my legs were still moving. In fact, I was so lost in that thought that I almost tripped on a break in the sidewalk. I actually felt very good finishing and sprinted the last little bit. I even enjoyed the ice bath afterwards. Now I just need to get one of those bath pillows.

Unfortunately, ever since my right hip is pretty sore. It originally started hurting this past Thursday then went away. I hope it goes away by tomorrow.

Other than the sore hip, yesterday was a really fun day. I may have even found a few new places to run. I can't wait!

Also, congratulations to Joe for his crazy-long bike ride out to the beach yesterday!


  1. Congratulations on your 8 mile run but please be careful. Tripping and falling is no laughing matter. It actualy happened to me, had knees swollen and worst of all, I had to stop running for a while at least until my knees got well. Hope your hips get better. Have a wonderful week.

  2. I'm super proud of you! Summer fog in summer in Florida is like a bath in your own sweat. (And yes, it's summer in Florida 11.5 months out of the year.)

  3. Aren't roommates great! I wouldn't be where I am right now without mine :) Have a great week!
