Semi-planned day of rest.  Legs had been sore - but the long slow run yesterday eliminated that issue.  Just a bit on the sleepy-side today - and lots of family committments - So no running today.

AM - 3.5 miles at lunchtime with lots of rolling/stretching.  I noticed yesterday evening and this morning some right hip pain/soreness - which I have noticed a couple of times over the last few weeks.  I think it is tied to higher volumes/frequency of treadmill running.   I have been doing my main workout at midday and recently have increased the volume - but because it is very hot/humid in the summertime here - I struggle to do those workouts effectively outdoors at that time.  Hence, I choose to run on the treadmill - which I think is resulting in too much repetitive workload in the same "static" position.  Anyway - to solve for this during the warmer months - I will attempt to shift my main workouts to morning or evening - in order to limit treadmill use.   So the easy run at lunchtime today was outdoors and I had no discomfort or soreness during or after.  Will try to get a workout done this evening after work, but outdoors.  

PM - workout 4 x 800 with a 400 rest; mile warmup and cool down; outdoors in the Fowler Park track.  3:11, 3:05, 3:04 and 3:03.  Pleased with the effort.  First one was a little off in pacing - but the next 3 were good.  Both hips were sore after the last one and though I had thought about doing a few more reps - I thought better of it.

PM - lunchtime - 6 miles on the eliptical followed by 2000 meters of indoor rowing.  Good amount of foam rolling and stretching afterwards. Right abductor pain/soreness (and a little left side too) made me decide to opt for the cross training solution today.  I have a pattern of ignoring/not recognizing/denying early signs of possible overuse injury - so, trying to avoid that same pattern here.
