I've been pretty tired each morning. I need to get back into my old routine of going to bed early if I am going to wake up early. Drinking pots of coffee in the morning after I run and again after lunch doesn't seem like a healthy alternative.
I've got a holiday party tonight which always bodes well (not!) for catching up on rest. I may opt for a late run Saturday and try to sleep in. Since I am training through JINGLE, I am content to run up to 15 miles, but I still want to get a good nights rest prior to the race.
The hip seems to be getting better each day I run. Just taking it easy. I slacked a bit last week with push-ups/sit-ups but have since got back on the bandwagon. I ran an easy 10 with Bain this morning and, as is usual, I scoop up the Washington Express around mile 8 and run baton relay style for the last two miles back home.
