Sally and my friend Ben and I ran this morning, and for as much as I want to feel like I'm running well--or at least better--this morning, it was rough.
|6.5 miles at almost exactly a 9:00/mile pace.|
Well. Earlier this week, my ankle was really sore, and that was after a mere five miles. Today we put in more than six, and it actually feels better than it did before we went, so who knows? Maybe that's progress.
Anyway, I need to get to where I can run three times per week comfortably and without feeling like I'm just a handful of steps away from having an injury. I suppose that if today's run achieves that, then it'll be a positive step regardless of how I felt, but right now I just want to feel better. I wanna feel like I'm running well.
Is that asking too much?
