From Northfield Rd., to the Bethesda Metro Station. It was in the upper 20s F and with my coat at work, I wore a lighter jacket. That oddly felt okay.

Washington, D.C. I did another variation of the loop I call the Memorial Tour. From 12th & Independence Ave., SW, to Lincoln Memorial Circle via the Reflecting Pool, across Memorial Bridge to the Mt. Vernon Trail, to the 14th St. Bridge,. to Main Ave. to 15th St., SW, to Independence Ave. SW., to 12th St., SW. When I had left work to run this, it seemed like there was hardly anyone left in the building; I guess people were in a hurry with it being Friday, and a high potential of there being a government shutdown may have zapped enthusiasm. Protesters unrelated to the threat of a shutdown, who were on The Mall earlier, were walking about as tourist do. I felt a but awkward in my right leg not long after starting out. It seemed like something was slightly off and that a bit of stretching might undo it. I went on but at about the 1 mile point, I felt an old familiar pain in my right ankle. This hadn't happened it a long time but it was a precursor to my back pains a few years back--tendons are connected so I think I felt it there first. It scares me a bit but the past history and having not done much training lately kept me going. It was fairly minor at that point and this has sometimes gone away as I've gotten more warmed-up. About half-way cross Memorial Bridge, with a change in slope, one step gave me a sharper pain. I slowed a lot but was thinking I was almost half way and should just go on. The same thing repeated 2 more times with the worst being on the 14th St. Bridge, again in the middle of it. I had to walk a while after that one, but I got going again. I was shuffling along not much faster than walking. I was passing a few people who were walking but not by a lot. Other than getting injured, the evening was nice, in the 40s for a change. It was neat seeing the Potomac River and Tidal Basin with broken sheets and blocks of ice practically the whole way across.

Bicycling (Commute) 7:38 [2] 1.3 mi (5:52 / mi) +22m 5:35 / mi

From the Bethesda Metro Station to Northfield Rd. With my ankle bothering me and carrying 2 backpacks, I rode slowly. I also had my coat strapped to one backpack so while wearing 2, one pushed my head down with a little pressure on my neck.

From Northfield Rd., through Greenwich Park to Old Georgetown Pike, to W. Cedar La. to Rockville Pike, to the Bethesda Trolley Trail, to Maple Ridge Rd., to Old Georgetown Rd., to Huntington Pkwy., to Custer Rd., to Northfield Rd. Along Rockville Pike, there was construction for a pedestrian tunnel to the Medical Center Metro Station that closed the sidewalk. I detoured by the station to get around it. It was in the 20s F starting out, sunny, but with light steady winds from the NW. I felt like I was slowing down after a mile. I would have preferred a longer forest run but got I'd things done around the house earlier. An early dinner with friends Bob and Ben, in Bethesda followed.
