Three good miles this afternoon, and no problems. I stretched carefully before, during, and after, and my hip (the first one, hurt in the river) is still tight. I know it's there, I'm treating it well, and it's running happily.

According to Map My Run, it was just under 3 miles, and since I haven't been running, that's pretty impressive to me. While this longish (don't laugh, Suzee) time is great for my head, I also want to do some interval work. The one block I ran like I was being filmed -- cue Chariots of Fire theme song -- felt so good I wanted to do more.

But I didn't, and I'll be able to walk happily to the end hour of the farmer's market tomorrow as a reward. And since the middle Things went to bed quietly, I bet we find our way to the KettleCorn vendor too.

Three miles is fantastic! That was my big milestone only a few months ago, so you're gaining on me quick.

I do intervals on the treadmill, btw, to reduce the joint stress. It also keeps the pace steady so ya can't cheat.

Yay for no pain, and double yay for kettle corn!

Wow, three miles. I continue to be impressed. I'm also very pleased that you're healing so that you can enjoy it again!

I keep meaning to ask how you manage to read while knitting. I can knit with an audiobook in my iPod, no problem, but to read a real book, I end up cross legged on my bed, holding the book open with my toes and sort of hunching over. Do you have a book holding device?
