Got kicked off the track, so I had to do it on the road.

 What a treat to run 15 miles yesterday!!  It was downright glorious.


It took me about 2 hr 10 min, average pace 9:03, average hr 158.  Here were the splits:  9:47, 9:47, 8:57, 8:38, 8:50, 9:24, 8:22, 8:43, 8:33, 8:24, 8:47, 9:03, 8:37, 8:42, 9:40.  

In the second mile, I got one of those weird stabbing pains in my ankle that makes it impossible to put my weight on it at all.  That derailed me for a minute, and I stood there, waiting to see whether I'd have to just quit the run.  But thankfully, it passed.  Today is has been spontaneously hurting, then completely disappearing.  

As for the right hip, I feel GREAT!  The IT band is a bit tender, but I'm taking care of it.  The hip flexors and TFL and piriformis all feel completely normal again!
