It’s been a week.

Happy New Year! Did I tell you Happy New Year yet? I don’t remember, so If I didn’t, Happy New Year…again.


Our New Year’s Eve was nothing exciting, it’s really worth writing an entire post about. We stayed at home, and hung out. Chris got a new monopoly game so we played that.


I totally suck at Monopoly. I can’t haggle or bargain. Chris & his brother on the other hand. They can bargain each other all night.


Saturday I spent my entire day in pajamas, it was awesome. I blogged, watched the Gator game, and just chilled out.

I also got in a 4mi run. All day I was reading blogs, and tweets and everyone was kicking their New Year’s off right, and I was sitting on the couch in my pajamas.

Does this qualify as negative splits?

I am having some nagging left hip pain. It’s been attacking me for several days during my runs. I thought maybe it was time for new shoes, so I ordered new shoes. Then I started looking @ the mileage I have on these shoes and it’s not enough to be causing the pain, so, I’m stumped.

I’m hoping it’s just over-usage soreness. I’ve run 6 days in a row, which is more days in a row then I run in quite a while. I am going to take 2 days off, and self-medicate w/ Ibuprofen during the day, and muscle relaxers at night. I hope this cures the pain.

Today I went running w/ the Suncoast Striders. We met @ Starkey park and headed out a little after 7am. I don’t really “run” with anyone, but I run “with in” the group. Everyone kind of has their running buddies and everyone starts out around 7 , run their miles, then meet back up for some good camaraderie, treats, and drinks. Even thought I’m new to the group, I enjoy running with in the group and talking to a few people afterwards. (Hi David!)


A beautiful humid as hell morning in Starkey Park.


Sorry for the blur. I saw 2 deer crossing the road as I was driving out of the park! So cool!!!


My hip really started hurting around mile 3.8. I thought I might have to walk back. Every step hurt, and I was getting totally annoyed. Eventually it stopped hurting so bad and the pain subsided to a gentle roar. Definitely reaffirms that I will be taking 2 days off. 


Happy Sunday Ya’ll, hope you had a wonderful New Years. I’m off to take some muscle relaxers and pass out. 🙂
