30 minutes of real easy running on the treadmill at the Y. 10-minute first mile, then moved down to about 8. Then 20 minutes or stretching and some flexibility exercises.

Another 30 minute run on the Y treadmill, pushed just a bit more than Sunday and then did stretching/exercises for 30 minutes. Not feeling much pain at all during running anymore, other than some soreness in my lower abdomen. I'm hoping that's just weakness from inactivity and the injury.

Another 30 minute treadmill/stretching day. It still takes me a little longer to loosen up, even indoors, but after 10 minutes I feel strong. Kept the pace nice and slow again.

Another easy run on the treadmill. A bit faster pace this time, little by little. I'm actually feeling much better, running pretty much pain-free and not even noticing the hip/groin much in stretching.

Same thing -- 30 minutes at the Y on a treadmill -- feeling better every time out.

90 minutes of basketball at the Y. Pushed a little more today, strength is all there, though my groin felt fatigued by the end. No pain later in the day though.

Same deal, still takes a mile to work the kinks out but things are improving.

More of the same. Left hip flexor kind of cranky to get started today. Still, it's about time to change pace.

90 minutes of basketball, then I went and ran for 10 minutes on the treadmill to cap it off.

YMCA treadmill, slow and easy. Just a touch of soreness in my groin anymore, and it warms up pretty quickly.

In Mount Vernon for Christmas, a morning run on my old trail at Skagit Valley College. Two laps through the woods at an easy pace. 27:00

Two laps at SVC, then wandered through a new development nearby that ate up all the fields that used to surround my house. Lots of homes in there. 40:00

Met Mike at Evergreen Park, ran to Lions Park and then back via Manette Bridge and downtown. Pushed for a little while (close to 7/min) and I could feel it, so we backed off halfway through. A little groin soreness by the end, and felt more winded than I'd expect. 41:00

Illahee Preserve morning run, just about had the whole forest to myself. Foggy and cool, weather that matches this low boiling cold I'm getting. Legs felt good, a little fatigued after 20 minutes in but no pain or anything. And that may have been the cold anyway. 33:10
