Out before breakfast today so no anti-inflammatory tablet. I know that it shouldn't be a problem for 'normal' people but I still prefer to eat beforehand, especially considering how many tablets have gone and will be going through my tummy. So 'real feel' today and happy to report that my knee is ok or certainly no worse after Thursday's long trail run.

My ankle coped fairly well too, good even when comparing with similar long, hilly terrain sessions over the last few weeks. I did some research on it yesterday and 'Anterior Ankle Impingement' seems about right. I mean if recurrent ankle sprains and inadequate rehabilitation following them are likely causes then it 'fits like a glove'.

I'm pretty sure there are bony anomalies, spurs that have developed on the bone surfaces crunched together on each sprain. It's been consistently near on impossible to stretch my lower calf for years now. Plus I remember that the many weeks away from running after breaking my knee really wasn't good for my ankle. When I eventually started training/stretching again I noticed some really deep and sometimes painful clicks. That was before twisting it at the ORingen too.

Long trail route. Really, really wet. Flooded even.

My ankle seems to prefer the regularity of the easier trails, no surprise I guess. Had to slow down a fair bit through the more rooty singletrack, otherwise a reasonable output.

Orienteering long (forest) 1:45:45 [2] 12.4 km (8:32 / km)
ahr:128 max:143 weight:90.4kg shoes: inov-8 oroc 280 red - new pair

(14.8, 58.5, 43.8, 14.2)

Re-ran the course from that time in the Summer where we ran through a wasp's nest and I lost my glasses. Took the controls in reverse order this time. Got to the nest in about 30mins, paused the watch and then spent a fair while looking for the glasses.

It initially seemed like a good plan to wait until this time of year - much less bushy, much less chance of being stung so I could go right up to the nest and search around in and importantly no snow yet. Still couldn't find them for toffee, give up now.

Regardless of the snail's pace ankle not in a good way. I'm not sure it is getting any worse but it's sure not getting much better either. Also had a slight problem with the left groin for the first time in a while but expected I guess as I've been doing lots of running without much recovery work.

With Robin. Wanted to actually make 2 laps this time around so took a rest day yesterday and we took it much easier. It did seem to work and my ankle didn't ever get really bad, maybe on the warm-down. It certainly wouldn't have made 3 laps!
11 PM


750/1000 days.

Am I still doing this? The 800 days summary will be much more interesting I promise.
