I went out towards Mini GU corner but I could only got a mile into my run and my hip was hurting pretty good so I turned and headed for home... I then hopped on the elliptical and did that for 40 minutes and my hip finally felt good so I then ran 2.25 miles on the treadmill with no pain. 1 mile was at marathon pace (7:54) and then I went easy for the 1.25 miles... I just don't understand why I can do this but then I can't run out on the road. The elliptical seems to really get it warmed up and it seems to loosen up good, and then I can run on the treadmill and it feels good... I know the treadmill is softer but I think if I ran out on the road it wouldn't feel the same. Maybe I will have to warm up on the elliptical and then go and run outside and see if it does better, at this point I just don't know! Its turning into a real weird injury. I am going to the doctor tomorrow so maybe I will see what he thinks and then go from there. I still feel like I got in a pretty good workout and I think this way I can keep my fitness until I slow down for the marathon and then just maybe I will be healed up for SG;-)

40 Minutes on the elliptical and then 20 minutes on the the treadmill with 1 mile at marathon pace for a total of 2.25 miles and then 2 miles out on the road.

See ya tomorrow.

I had a very painful run this morning I ran 2 miles and then I just came home, very disappointing. I then went and jumped on the elliptical and did 40 minutes there and then my groin seemed to loosen up again so I ran a mile on the treadmill and it seemed to do okay but it was a little more painful than yesterday. I'm really thinking of just taking the next three weeks off and then see how it heals up and go from there, I certainly can't run SG the way things are right now so I don't know. I am really ticked off!!! I go to the Dr today so I will see what he thinks... Maybe I will just go down and support all the bloggers and cheer them on, thats kind of what I'm leaning towards, since I can't get any refunds on my rooms now;-(

See ya tomorrow.

Rest... Maybe the elliptical later today but I have a hard time getting motivated to do the elliptical at this point, I just don't know much good it will to me this close to the race. I will be running tomorrow morning to see how it does, the groin that is, and then hopefully I can get a better idea on how it is healing.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards mini GU corner but my leg was hurting pretty bad and then I stopped and took out the lift that my Dr. had given me and then started running again. The pain was a lot less in fact it was tolerable, so I ran up over Harry's hill and then down past the stake center and then out to my 2 mile mark and then headed for home, I started to have stomach issues with about a mile left and I also started to cramp because of those issues, boy did it hurt... I was able to talk to Kent Wing at the top of Harry's and he said that it didn't sound like my groin was giving me the problem so he gave me some sound advice and I am going to try it these next few weeks. He was able to describe to me my symptoms with out me mentioning a word, so I will be trying it the next few weeks and see how it goes. I was able to run a couple of sub 8 minute miles which is my new marathon pace because of the injury, but I still have some pain and I have some work to do these last few weeks. I still plan on taking it easy for the most part but I'm hoping for the best.

Total time was 1:34:12, average pace was right around 9:00.

See ya later.
