Bumps and Bruises

Since the long runs have started climbing over the half marathon length my body has been feeling it.  I have definitely had to do some adjusting to my schedule and ensure plenty of recovery time.  I did begin getting some pain in my hip and big toe on my right side.  I think the toe is a result of the hip pain.  I think the hip pain is due to my IT band.  I did some major foam rolling and stretching and feel better now but only time will tell if it will be 100% by Saturday for my next long run.  

Saturday August 18th Long Run
15 miles in 2hrs and 43 minutes.  

I started a little to fast and did not have enough water with me.  I crashed by the end but learning from the bumps and bruises and I know I can do better
