i can run again!

About a month ago, I developed tendonitis in my hip—which a) I didn't even know was possible; and b) makes me feel really really old—caused by lots and lots of running. So, I took about a month off (and a shitload of Advil®) to see if it would get better on its own. Finally, I couldn't take it any longer and decided to try and run again yesterday. I only ran three miles and it was on the treadmill and I didn't go any faster than 8 min miles, but still! I ran! I was half expecting to wake up this morning and not be able to walk, but mostly it's ok. It feels a little tight and there's a tiny amount of pain, but nothing near like what it was before.

Then, today, I proceeded to eat a block of cheese the size of a pygmy goat, you know, to negate any forward progress I'd made.

Anyway, I'm going to try again tomorrow and see what happens. Wish me luck.

Good to hear! I'll be happy to settle for walking, but there may be hope for me too...

Holy crap, three eight minute miles is your recovery run? I hope you're never chasing me with an axe or anything. I'd be toast.
