Not a whole lot to say about this run. I took off feeling tired(still not adjusted to the energy required to teach) and took off for an easy 6 mile run. About halfway through my foot/ankle started to hurt and the pain just kept getting worse until I decided to just call it a day after mile 5. This pain/injury of mine is starting to drive me crazy. I don’t understand how one day it feels pain free and fantastic and then the next it feels extremely painful. I am starting to question and evaluate my approach to each run. Maybe there is something I am doing different that causes the pain. I am thinking subtle things like how tight I lace up my shoes or something. As soon as I stopped running the pain was gone. The pain today extended to the top of my foot(which that has never happened before). I wonder if I tied my shoes too tight or something. I don’t know, but that was not the way I wanted to end that run.
I will rest the body and see how it feels for the weekend. I need to get a long run in so I will determine tomorrow morning if that will be done Saturday or Sunday.
So 5.4 miles ran in 46:31 for 8:37 pace.
Enjoy your weekend!
