My hip is really bothering me, and this run was particularly bad.  I need to be better about stretching and core work.  That will be my priority this coming week over running.

Went to Kansas City with a group of students.  A few of them ran with me in the early morning before we went to Mass.  They all ended at 4 miles.  Wimps.

But for the wind, this run was awesome.  In the last mile, I stopped to walk for .05 miles into the wind and then was able to turn so it wasn't in my face full force.  All that meant was that because I knew that my run was going to end before I got to my house, I wouldn't have to end my run into the wind.  It made sense at the time.
