Notes

I took Ibuprofen in the morning and about 45 minutes before I ran today and my hip felt a lot better.

I also limited the amount of stretching I did pre-run. I believe that too much stretching aggravates my hip. Seemed to work today

I was stiff for the first quarter mile, but it was not too bad. From there all was good

The weather was great. Nice breeze, but not too much, and warm.

Thinking about a long run tomorrow. 8 miler? It’s possible!
