    I hate to say it, but what everyone says typically works:

    Ibuprofen for inflammation, ice every day, stretch and then the foam roller tends help.

    I unfortunately just came down with a nasty bout of compartment syndrome and I can't run for a couple months. [​IMG]

    At least I'm young and there's always next season.

    yea that seems to be what everyone is saying just foam roller, stretching, and hip strengthening exercises. I am going to take a few days off and see how things go, hopefully it goes away pretty quick since I haven't decided to run through the pain except for 1 day.

    5km today.

    First time on the treadmill in a long while. I feel like puking- the air in the gym is so stale.

    Heading back out the next time.

    I had a nice 10 mile run at 6AM. There's something about running that early where it basically feels like a separate day. It's also hard to beat the nice sunrise here in the mountains this time of year.

    7 miles in just under 1 hour, most of it at a 7.5 min/mile pace. It is my longest run ever and doing at better than a 8 min/mile pace makes me very happy.

    I run mornings for a number of reasons:

    First, it's easier too fit in to my schedule. Nothing competing in the early morning hours.

    Second, weight loss - when I played competitive racquetball I could play up to three hours post-work and not be much lighter afterwards, while 3-4 morning miles would shed weight very efficiently. It turns out that while your heart rate rises and falls efficently with your activity levels, your metabolic rate makes slower transitions, particularly as your activity level falls off. Morning runs elevate your metabolic rate which stays somewhat elevated for a number of hours post-run - provided you don't gorge yourself afterwards.

    Third: it makes me happy. I like starting the day happy.


    I am running 4 - 6 miles this evening probably around 8pm. Distance will depend on my knee.

    As for when to run, out of the mid day heat is usually optimal. Heat stroke can ruin a day. I try to run in the mornings. It gives me a good pick me up for the entire day.
