Day off. I think. Maybe 4 days of running this week. More of the same. 50-55 minutes as I am able. Try to get to a Spin class, which is included in my gym membership. They probably are everywhere, but they sold the package pretty well. Get the diet back on track, and stay off the scale until December.

Off. Should have gone running. Hobbled about after sitting most of the day. That kind of rest is clearly not working.

Hip seems worse when I rest. Running is clearly the ticket to recovery.

AM: Had my prospectus defense this morning (finally). Passed just fine. Kind of anticlimatic since I waited so long. I had important things to do. Like run all the miles :) Strange how I get far LESS done now that I am unable to run as much.

Newtone - 8.4 miles in 70 minutes. Did a few 10 MPH 1 min pickups. A long way from 30 minutes at 10 MPH last August on the treadmill in Philly, but I'll get it back.
