Nearly a week off running is hard, it makes me feel fat and unhealthy even though I probably no different at all.
Distances: 5km 8.2km
I did have a commitment this week and that was to meet David for a monthly barefoot runners meeting which basically just consisted of the two of us.
We ran the city centre River Torrens run and this was the first run where I could feel the warmth returning to the ground. The weather was beautiful, clear blue sky, no wind. I took it nice and easy on the run, just chatting along the way, the more serious running crowd passing us every now and again. After the run we called up to the local deli and had a coffee.
I decided to have a Sunday run as the ankle wasn't too bad on Saturday. I did an early gym session then went up to the lake to run my loop run. It was quite windy today, blowing from the north. The ankle played up a bit, I could run but not fast, it just feels tight. It seems to be different tendons that ache at different times, sometimes the outer ones sometimes the inner ones.
These small runs I am hoping will not hinder the healing process but just act as progress tests.
