12 for 2012
On top of the stomach issues, my right hip flexor was pretty tight throughout the whole run. Didn't seem to effect my running much, although I did end up slowing down a bit over the last half. I still finished the run with a respectable 9:13 average, but I was glad to be done. I guess after all the awesome long runs I've had in the last month I was due a sucky one! My stomach was still off for the rest of the night, so I'm not sure what caused the problem, just hoping it's not around race day. My hip is more sore than I would like; lifting that leg at all is difficult. I went to my conditioning class this morning and that seemed to help loosen things up, but I'll be keeping an eye on it, icing and trigger pointing, and keeping my fingers crossed.
In other news, today is the first official day of IRONMAN TRAINING!! We're starting things off pretty easy with my workout this morning then a swim later this afternoon. I'll be back with regular weekly recaps now that the adventure has begun! 173 days.
