Decided to take the day off.  Was really tired today after yesterday's run and a full day of yardwork.  Rather take it gradually anyway, since I am starting to feel like I am nearly back to being healthy.

AM - appxly 4 miles before work.  Things felt ok, just a little "catch" in the left hip a couple of times but no pain or discomfort - feeling nearly healed.

AM - 6 miles this morning.  More moderately paced today.  I think I am finely over this injury...meaning I think it is healed and I am 100%.  

Now the trick is to stay healthy and not to overdo - or do too much too soon.  Though I am really tempted to do a couple of doubles this week just to get some more volume in.

AM - about 7.5 miles this morning.  Hillier route - warmer today.  A bit more tired feeling than the last couple of days.  Went further today though.  Decent run.

AM - 6 miles - same neighborhood, different route.  Actually run a different route everyday on my morning runs in the same neighborhood because it is has no traffic and is very quiet.  Tried to push it a bit on the uphills and downhills - probably should have been more cautious, but I was feeling fairly solid.

PM - inspired by my friends' performance in Duluth, I did a decent, but hilly 12 mile run in the afternoon. Really wore me out.
