So at 5am we got up. I don't think it was hard for D since this is his normal time of waking up. We took separate cars over to the gym, because he was running 2 and I was running 3.5. The gym was packed! Apparently, all the NY Resolutioners go to the gym at 5am! Who knew?
We both got treadmills and began. Nothing exciting. I finished and got home about 10 minutes after D left for work. All day my hip and knee felt wonky. I didn't think I would run that night. It took over 2 hours to get home. When I finally did all I wanted to do was cut off my hip and cry. It hurt to sit in a chair. I told D I was going to go watch TV in bed, and I couldn't run. I would do it Thursday AM. He went. I went to sleep. Since D gets up every day at 5AM, no need to set my alarm.
I looked at the clock at 441 AM. Ah 19 minutes more. I looked again. 546. D was sound asleep. I don't know why he didn't set his alarm, but he didn't, and I was just as equally to blame, since mine wasn't set either. Anyway he got up. I decided I would have to run after work and to go to work now, so as to not spend 2+ hours in traffic again. I had forgotten about the hip.
While at work, I started thinking about my hip. It wasn't the same pain as before. It really was stemming from the knee. Maybe I should relax on the ITB Strap. I left work and made it over to the gym...
The gym was empty at 515pm. So odd! Anyway I ran 2 miles in less than 25 minutes. The speed is returning (if you can call it that). The first mile was 12 minutes and the second was 12:31. The knee felt fine.
Got home and ate dinner, and then D and I went on a date. There was a tap takeover at a bar we hadn't been to before. It was a fun time. We looked at the menu...we'll have to go back.
