Hip Flexors are the DEVIL!

Ahhh my hip flexor hurts like CRAZY!! 

 I did a whole 15 minutes of a Jillian Michaels DVD on Thursday....She's the devil too but I love her!

I ran 2.7 miles yesterday, with my spaztastic dog (yup I just made up a word....You know you like it and want to use it now!!)  My hip flexor hurt yesterday morning, but I decided to run anyways.  My run felt GREAT and my hip didn't hurt at all during my run.  I logged the 2.7 miles in about 40 minutes, it was slow, I walked a smidge (My 8 month old puppy still has his "man-hood" so he stops to pee on EVERYTHING)  but I feel bad not taking him occassionally...he loves it, but some day he WILL make me break my leg!  He's clumsy, and I'm our clumsiness together is bound to = disaster eventually!

I feel SO much better when I've ran....I was in a funk all night Thursday and I think it's because I didn't run.....Ever happen to you?

I'm off to stretch the Ba-Jesus out of my hip flexor, then sleep time!

I have a run date with O-No today!  We're planning on 6 miles!  I've never ran that far before so we'll see how it goes!! 

I'm newly obsessed with taking pictures of my food (Thanks HungryRunnerGirl!) I have a secret plan of not moving off the couch, watching NetFlix and making/eating a yummy dinner tonight....maybe even some cookies!  If I somehow feel productive I will post pictures of our Yumminess! (After I ROCK my 6 miles of course!....possitive thinking leads to possitive results right??)

Hi there!
I just found your blog through Hungry Runner Girl and I feel like we have a lot in common! I am also a nurse (and work night shift too!) and I am running my first half marathon on May 1! I can't wait to read all about your journey!

Hey! I found your blog from a comment over at (love her!). I'm starting nursing school in the fall, and am going to run my first 5K this May. It's nice to find a blog with someone who is just starting a running "journey" as well - everyone else seems to have it down!

Kim- I tried to go to your blog from your comment but it said profile not available?...

Good Luck with nursing school! It's tough work but SO worth it in the end!!

Good Luck on your running journey as well! I can't wait to be able to get to your profile and 'stalk" your journey! It's exciting!!
