I've only run a handful of times in the past month. Although I didn't have hip flexor/groin/ab soreness at El Vaquero Loco, I've been in pain after nearly every run since. Not dehabilitating, but after a few easy miles I'll wake up with a little limp the next morning. It's frustrating. So I've tried to spend time slowly stretching or doing light yoga instead for the past few weeks, hoping that the rest will heal something. 

This weekend I did meet Mike at his house so we could go for a few miles. We took his new dog. Out to Rocky Point and back, pretty easy pace. Felt ok, not perfect, but ok, the rest of the day. 42:40

I had some slight soreness in my ab walking around this morning, but not too bad in the hip. So  after walkig to church and back to loosen/warm-up, in the afternoon I decided to run at Illahee Preserve. About 3 easy miles, just finished before a huge t-storm hit. 23:00
