Watching The Weak Points From Speedwork

Yesterday'shill repeats, I'm feeling them where it usually trips me up, right in the gluteus medius.or minimus (its hard to distinguish, one being on top of the other). (thats what she said) :)
Yup my arse.  As usual, from my hip down into the lower part of my buttock is sore.  I need to keep an eye on this as it has tripped me up in the past and I have had a good stint about a year now of injury free running.  If I could only have the buttocks of an adonis.  But sadly, I have my father's arse.  which is to say, I dont have much of one.  Area of weakness.
What's more, is working on core strength will in the long run help me find proper form when i am maxed out and feeling tired.  Form tends to get lost first, and injury follows.  More to come.
On another note, I had to take a break from running for a few days this week as my left calf was extremely DOS (Delayed Onset Soreness).  Trying to wrack my brains as to what could have caused this, I realized on Monday morning I was sitting on the couch and got up with a numb lower leg, it was comical and strange as I tried to walk on my left leg and it kept giving out like a weird robot movement.  Next day:  Extremely sitff and sore calf muscle!  It was after a run so my theory is cutting off blood flow to that muscle on the couch created some sort of soreness akin to doing calf raises to the max.  OUCH.  and weird.
