As I mentioned before, I changed marathons so I have an extra training week. Since there is a 10K this weekend, I decided to take it now.
My body has been aching, especially the lower back and right hip. I don't know what it is but it seems to be related to the piriformis and the back.
On Tuesday I ran 8 miles. Since the temps were still hot and humid, it was OK and not on pace.
On Thursday I ran another 8.03. Humidity was 56% and it went great. No hip issues.
Today, I ran another 8 miles and they were hard. Did not run at pace and everything from the belly button down is sore.
I think it's age, LOL.
