Workout Details

6 miles run today was warmer than expected



Temperature today was about 20degrees F warmer than normal. No need for running jacket, head gear or gloves.

The hip pain I have been experiencing was not an issue today. I continue to need to start out very slow as to not aggravate the hip.

I did take a couple of Ibuprofen a couple hours prior to running. I have never been an Ibuprofen user, however they do seem to work well.

I ran 6 miles today. I considered going 7 or 8 miles today but did not want to push it since my hip. Hydration was also a thought. After 3 miles, I was sweating very heavily. 91% humidity was a big contributor.

Going forward, I will consider carrying a water bottle or fuel belt. As the longer runs increase in distance, I need to have water and a snack to maintain energy levels.

Overall, I was satisfied with the run.
