Three Things Thursday
1. I have jumped on another social media bandwagon. No, not Twitter. I think I’ll stay far, far away from that one…
I have to say that the power of suggestion is strong in the blogosphere. Quite a few of the blogs I read have been promoting the Endurance Athlete Project. Essentially it’s Facebook for the physically fit! I’m actually kind of excited about it. I don’t follow a lot of blogs on their fb profiles simply because it made my regular fb too much. However, this makes it a little easier. My only problem is that starting out I’ll have to be the cyber-stalker making all the friend requests… We’ll see how it goes.
2. I went for one cold, rainy run today. Nothing like being committed to a run with a running partner. We seemed to hit the worst rain of the day – total downpour and windy. My DWR jacket had nothing on the rain. I think the only part of me that was dry was my stomach – it was shielded a bit by the stroller. Of course it’s beautiful sunny breaks now…
3. My hip flexor is dumb. I had severe hip flexor pain during my marathon (not that I knew what it was then, just that I couldn’t lift my legs) and it’s started to act up again. I don’t know if it’s from pushing the stroller and being out of alignment or from running faster. I haven’t really upped my distance lately – the longest I’ve run is about 15km. All I know is that I have to start doing Colin’s physio strength and stretch exercises. ERGH!!! I’m so bad with doing workouts at home… obviously I’ll have to add them onto the core work I’m also supposed to be doing. Hello, New Year’s resolution!
I am not sure if I could find time for that social network though it does sound tempting. Hope you will post how it is working out for you.

Thanks for that endurance athlete link. I hadn't heard about it yet. Can't wait to check it out!
Sorry to hear about your hip flexor pain. I'm sure you've tried everything, but I just have to ask if you've tried using the foam roller to hit those trigger points?

That run sounds terrible! Glad you're not tweeting either, solidarity!
