Ran the totem route from the post office.  Felt good, but hips still tight and not great.  Super Icy too and some head winds.

My hips were hurting so bad from skiing yesterday.  It just shows how one dimensional I've become.  I really need to do the other things like stretching and some dynamic warm-ups, weights, etc... Otherwise, I'll barely be able to walk when I get older.

I did warm-up and decided to run an easy 6 miler on the treadmill in Girdwood.

7 miles

Easy recovery pace at AK club.  I also went XC Skate Skiing which was fun, but turned out to be a bad idea.

It was kind of a failed workout today.  I was suppose to do 8 miles at 5:52 pace and I just wasn't ready for it.  I'm following a little different program and I'm just not ready yet.  Plus, it's hard over the holidays with all the crap I've been eating.  Still got a good workout in though. Next time will be easier.
