I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 4.5 miles before both hips really hurt, then 5 elliptical miles.  Probably won't run tonight to give them a rest.

Kami said she saw you at the gym this morning...and you didn't even say Hi! ;-)

Rest the hips and get them well.

Oops, sorry. I didn't see her- but I also wasn't expecting to see anyone so wasn't looking.

Just giving you a hard time!

Hope your hips get to feeling better!

Wish you could be down here to train Jon... that's just too much treadmill and elliptical. My hips always kind of bug after a long elliptical session.

Last spring when my problems increased the PT told me to use the theraband for resistance with leg raises- straight legged and clam shell, lying on my side, 2-3 x 15 reps, hold 5 seconds,each leg, couple times a day. I still do this and it has helped my hips and IT a lot. I managed to run a marathon with no hip or IT pain, which killed me in my previous marathon.

Jon - great performance last week. I really hope the hips get better. I won't give you advice because you don't need that your already know what to do when the bodies hurting.

Jon, Here's to a quick recovery.
