2. A bagel was too much to eat - I will try a half bagel one hour before my run the next time.
3. If I still feel over-full the next time, after eating less, I will need to experiment with a longer period of time between eating and running.
4. It is time for me to start considering hill training on a more regular basis (once a week? once every two weeks?)
5. My soreness in the hip flexor area is from adding too much mileage. It has been a tough two weeks of running for me, and I am cutting back this week.
