running endless laps.

I’ve come to the conclusion that it is that darn treadmill that is wreaking havoc on my right hip. Running outside it is fine. Ellipticaling my life away it also is fine. But running on the treadmill, jeesh it just hurts so badly. I have reached out to my cross country coach at school and told him of my latest ailment and he suggested rest and some ice. I took his advice and I decided a few days of rest would be perfect… well a few days of rest equals a few days on the elliptical, and it felt fine.
Today I gave up the treadmill and headed outside for some fresh air. I ran and ran and ran around a track. Not just one steady pace, but I varied it. I did sprints and fast runs and slow jogs and everything in between and towards the end, I was tired. I ran a few miles at pace and it just felt so good 🙂
I just had to get that out there, there is nothing like running outside. Nothing even comes close.
see you on the track!
OHHH PROVIDENCE ROCK AND ROLL HALF MARATHON is sunday wooo!
