In my attempt to blog regularly, I will try to post something every few days.
My mother lives in Florida, outside of Orlando. She is by herself, without any family nearby. So, I try to visit her as often as possible. I flew in Thursday night and will leave tomorrow morning.
While I am here, I try to help her with some errands and shopping. We were even able to get in an eye doctor appointment while I was here.
The weather was a little cool. I didn't bring any cold weather clothes with me or my running gloves. It was 50 degrees this morning when I woke up - I would not have been dressed properly - so, I waited until about 0930 to run. It was about 54 degrees - but very windy. But the sun was out so warmed up more as I ran.
My hip is still hurting a little bit - so, I slowed down and walked a little more than planned. Doctor appointment this week - maybe I might be able to get an X-ray or MRI scheduled so I can see if there is something really wrong - or just wear & tear.
4 week until the Louisiana Marathon. I still have an 18 & 20 mile training run. If something is really wrong - I would hate to aggravate it worse with the long training runs. So - I will just go a little slower - that's the plan.
