A fairly unfocused week for me running-wise, post-Amica marathon with no race this weekend to plan around, I find myself seven miles short of my weekly mileage goal of 40. I’ve been having some left ‘hip’ problems that I’m beginning to suspect is really a strained IT band – perhaps it’s time to start stretching a bit more systematically. I did try a new thing tonight – it turns out my little nano has a radio in it so I was able to listen to the first half of the Patriots win over the Jets during my long run.
Next weekend I’ll be in California for the Healdsburg Half Marathon. Four weeks from now, my last marathon of the year (maybe, probably) in Philadelphia. Hopefully the ankle & IT band will both be ungrouchified by then.
