Aching aching hips. I wonder if I should be doing some sort of stretch that would keep my hips from absolutely killing me after about 4 km.
Not too cool this morning but better than waiting til the heat of the day has sapped all energies :)
I find running the roads I run further than I would on the trail; its just less monotonous and more interesting. PLus you take this road, and that road, and you dont stop when youre tired, you stop when you get to the end of this road. and That road. and if you need more distance, add another loop.
