The big news is that I ran for TWENTY FIVE MINUTES on the treadmill today. With NO ANKLE PAIN. progress gentlemen, progress. All the rest is just ancillary.
I got to the stairs and 1) didn't feel very motivated and 2) was a bit
At lunch I hit the IMA and again didn't have a ton of time so cut the elliptical trainer warm-up short and instead focused on the run. Today I dialed it up to a 7:26 pace and just kept it there. when I got close to 20 minutes (my original goal) I was feeling fine so just kept on going.
Yes, I have been told that pushing too much is dangerous and yes, I know that running until it hurts is bad but all of my recent runs have felt fine so I was confident. And today my confidence was not misplaced. I am so pumped that my ankle is healing up! Soon I will be able to run outside, I'm sure that will be a shock to the old fitness expectations...
