Decent workout. Ankle was feeling so much better this morning, I was super ready for the workout. After the warmup it was fine just a little twinge, after active it was a bit worse but feeling better. After the first hill I was in an unbelievable amount of pain. Going down hills was worse, going up was okay as long as I didn't push off witht the toe on my right leg. The whole workout I just wanted to quit, and I was making excuses to quit but I pushed through and got a good saturday in, it wasn't as hardcore as other saturdays maybe, but mentally one of the most difficult ever. Cooldown and walking afterwards are very difficult and I have a pretty solid limp right now.

The ankle was feelling alot worse today. Had to give it some time to rest. iced it off and on all day trying to get it better. The ice is definitely making it feel better in the short run, but I still have a major limp when I walk.

Great wednesday effort. I got in deep real early but I was feeling very flowy and accepting of the pain. I worked real hard to make up for yesterdays loss and ended up losing to dylan again late in the workout. Ankle started to feel sore, iced it a bit in the afternoon, thought it was no big deal.
