Pace: 9:55

Conditions:

  • 60°
  • Humid

Observations:

  • Experienced significant pain in the left hip and buttocks area
  • Stopped after a mile to further stretch those areas (helped)
  • Lost track of direction so I finished short of my 8 mile goal

Take Aways:

  • I feel as if my pace is slowing rather than improving
  1. Perhaps I am overtraining
  2. Perhaps I need to do tempo runs 
  3. Perhaps I need to change how I do hills
