Fields. No plan but wanted to see if I could get a longer run in and how it would feel. Decided to try a progression run on the way home from 6:50 down to 6:20 pace. Got out 8 and was feeling pretty good. Stopped for a restroom break and stretched just a little. When I started back up my hips/groin hurt something awful and I thought maybe I shouldnt have stopped. Lowered the pace to around 6:50 and was able to hold that for about a mile but the hips/groin was hurting pretty bad so I slowed back to mid 7 pace. Got a couple miles from home and stopped cause it was so uncomfortable but in a way it has never been the last couple years. The PV XC boys came by as I was trying to stretch so I told them if they didnt go very fast Id come with them on their warm up. We ran out toward the Parkway but I turned around just before they did cause enough was enough. Thanks guys for dragging me home!!
So looking at the garmin the pace overall was good for a longer run and most of the body was able to handle the run but this hip thing is just a kick in the pants. Oh yeah and I was COLD. WOW.
