I think I'm seeing a Thursday pattern here. I had planned on mile repeats yesterday. Instead, I decided that a sore knee and sore groin would better be served with an extra night off.
I'm not sure the source of the pain. All I know is I woke up Thursday morning and felt like I had a pulled my right groin. And my right knee felt creaky and sore when walking. I figured that I slept on it funny or something so really didn't think much about it in the morning. But, when I still felt the pain in the late afternoon, I decided that the best thing to do would be to not push it. I couldn't help but taking lindsay's advice to heart - "Don't let the plan own you." I strained a groin last December, and it wasn't fun.
The good news is that it *must* have been the way I slept. I am totally pain free today! I am happy that I took the safe route and rested the extra day. In the big picture, the difference between 25 and 30 miles this week is inconsequential. But my peace of mind that there's nothing serious going on in there is priceless. On to Shelter Island on Sunday!
