Its pouring down .... sigh....Why tonight of all nights.
Well I am just going to head out and do 4km along the walkway. I am just going to pick an easy pace and see how my hip holds up. I have already decided that if the pain goes up to 3/10 then I will stop.
I walked the 800m to the walkway and then gently started out. First thing I notice is my hip is a dull ache so 1/10 on the pain scale (thanks to Tammy for this way of recording it) .... but my hip felt weak ... that's the only way I can describe it. I knew that I would not be able to push on it just yet.
By now I am drenched. I am wearing my new long sleeve pink wind top with the light on the sleeve. Its dark now so I make use of the flashing light and found it to be fantastic. (no good for finding my way but great for warning others I am there)
At the 3km mark my hip started to ache more. Like a lite bruise .. so pain had increased to a 2/10 and it remained that for the rest of the walk. Time for the 4km was 25:05 so an avg of 6:16 per km.
I made sure I stretched and then iced my hip when I got home.
Two hours later and its back to a 1/10. So not painful but I can still feel discomfort in my hip.
