NOTESSince 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.
