Unplanned but probably needed day off.

AM - 4 miles easy this morning.  Active though minor discomfort in the hip flexor has unfortuanately returned.  But it actually was not a bad run.

Wore the Saucony Triumph 10's that I wore all of last week.  (I wore the old Asics Gel Nimbus on Saturday). The literature on each of the shoes shows a seemingly signficant difference in "drop" - with the Nimbus at 11.5 or 12mm and the Triumph's at 8 mm.  Wondering if that could have any implication to my issues.

In any event, an interesting phenomenon I noticed was that sometimes with pain the hip flexor, it results in fatigue or weakness -  this morning the discomfort was substantially absent any weakness or fatigue...maybe that will return next.

Busy day.  HS Graduation for Delaney - and then finishing up the packing and emptying of my house for the big move...not a moment to spare for a run today.

AM - 5.5 miles this morning...one of the last few runs I will do in Florida as a resident here.  Staying in Innnisbrook since my house is now empty of furniture.  Had a relatively good run this morning around the perimeter and through the resort.  Cannot believe I have lived here within just few miles of this place and never did a run through it (although it is gated).

AM - 3 miles this morning - and maybe (hopefully) turning a corner.  The low mileage volume and sticking to the Saucony Triumphs may be working - no progression of the hip flexor issue in the last week, and it seems to be quieting down.  Bought a new pair of Triumphs yesterday too.
