Lower Back and Hip pain

For the last 3 or 4 days I have been having some lower back and right hip pain, this is something that I have experienced from time to time. I have had much worse things happen to me in multiday races so this kind of thing doesn't stop me from going out for a run. In fact what I usually find is that after a few awkward steps the tightness and the pain ease and my run goes on without too much of a problem. Of course if the pain increases when you run than you have to think about rest or treatment. What I am saying however is don't let a little soreness or tightness stop you from going out for your run, you might just find it helps :)

800 Days

So 9 days ago on what is known as Palm Sunday around the world I completed 800 days in my current running streak. For some reason it was not a comfortable run, I felt a little tired, but it was done and I was happy to reach this milestone for only the second time. In just a short time I will reach the half way mark towards my personal best of 4 years 6 months and 8 days. Who knows if I will reach it or pass it I just know that as long as I have the feeling to go out and run everyday I will :)
