I am happy to report that the hip is ok, a touch stiff - but the two rounds of ice did the trick. My ankle is likewise ok. A bit of a lingering hint of an ache but two rounds of ice did the trick.
Of all things - my abs are sore. I forgot that running is serious exercise for the core also! Good posture and all that.
Now the runner's high was divine, but it did precious little for me in the writing department. I could scarcely focus. So I guess I am going to give it a go later today or tomorrow...
Can't have a writer's high and a runner's high simultaneously I guess. Mores the pity!
