Personal:

Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

One is better than none. What a difference an n can make. My hip remained calm today. My knee was about the same but not worse. I opted for 1 TM mile before my PT and other exercises.

TM warm-up for PT. No worse than the day before... Long work night after though.

Commute run into work. I don't want to push my luck but opted to run instead of walking into work. My hip continues to behave itself. My knee does not. The good news is that things don't seem any worse after the runs.

I'll take anything that I can get. Hip still ok, knee still funky but not worse...

This has been a long work week. Each night I've had to work some... The PT continues to be in the evenings and just sticking with these small runs. My knee did fell a little more tight this morning. Just my commute run and then some stretching in the lecture hall.

Too far too fast? Not sure. It could just be the hard work weeks. 8 of the last 14 days I've gone back into work after the girls went down. The good news is that I've gotten a lot done. However, my hip and knee were both fairly sore today. For my warm-up for my PT today I stuck with 1mi on the treadmill but opted to do it barefoot. Between reading Born to Run and and recently the Nature paper explaining the science behind barefoot running I'm going to try and bring that into my training regimen...

Can you believe it? I made it into double digits. I did a barefoot treadmill mile and my stretches. My calves are really feeling the barefoot...
