I once had a hip flexor problem that responded very well to stretching.

As for winter running, the treadmill has been a bit of a godsend this past month. I wouldn't like to use it all the time but the option of an indoor run means I don't worry about the "really don't want to go out in this" days.

I drank 2 litres and am still probably dehydrated.
Sorting that out in spoons, second run of the day looking unlikely.
