Concrete/road run long (Long run) 2:30:00  12.6 mi (11:54 / mi)
This was a good run even though I wasn’t sure it would be. My run yesterday was sluggish at best and my ankles are staying stiff. The first hour was very slow with an average of 12:10. I was in so much pain, I took an Advil at 30 min which helped tremendously. I also found a simple soft dirt path that I added. At 1 hr, I hit the car and dropped off my coat. My plan was to run the same route to judge my speed but found a new route to explore. The first mile was too fast but after that I was right at 11:45 for the remainder of the hr. The last 30 minutes were the best. I pushed each mile faster than the last. I headed back to my car 2 min later than planned and I made it.
I am worried about my ankles and what’s making them so stiff. My left foot is starting to hurt from it.
