Hills, Hips and Shirts
I did some hill work yesterday and also visited PT guy.
.75 mile warm up
5 X 60 - 90 seconds running up the hill outside my door.
In the "I need your help category" :
Is this enough to start? I notice some soreness that tells me it is for now. Should I be striving for longer hills and more reps? How long? How many? I didn't have time to run after but I was wondering, when I do this, is this the workout for the day or should I be doing more running before or after? Appreciate your advice on this one.
PT guy is still trying to figure me and my hip out. It hurts most of the time, and especially after I get up from sitting and a lot after a run. He is now strongly suspecting it is a problem with my back as this is the most common place for referred pain. I have a two week plan for more specific strengthening after which time we will decide if we should get a picture of the back.
On to something really cool regarding our virtual race, 8 on the 8th -- Race Co-Director, Vickie, volunteered to find a shirt guy who will print us up some shirts. Head on over to her blog to read about it and decide if you want one. You can always take the logo picture and send it off to Running Banana or Zazzle and get something made on your own. But, if you are interested in getting the official shirt, let Vickie know!!! I will also be providing pictures of shirts I made on Running Banana and Zazzle's site so that you can post a "virtual shirt" for the "virtual race" if you like, but I know there a lot of people who would also like the "actual shirt". YEAH VICKIE for coming through!! :D
