Monday - 0 milesIt was raining pretty hard in the morning which was a good enough excuse to skip my run. Legs are actually pretty sore from yesterday's race.

My janky right foot has been getting better. I can roll it further onto the outside before the pain starts. I had an appointment today to see a sports medicine ortho as I wanted to see what he would say. Basically he echoed my primary care doc. It's not a stress fracture. It should get better with time. He gave me a kickass ankle brace which I can wear over my sock that should stabilize the foot and help keep it from rolling. We shall see.
Wednesday - 0 milesP90X Plyometrics (60 minutes)
Thursday - Charlestown, RI - 6.2 milesIt was cold and dark out there and I had no interest in running at 5:00 AM. But after three days off I wanted to get a run in. I also wanted to test out my new ankle brace on even ground before taking it into the woods. The test was a success - no discomfort running in it.
I ran at a pretty good clip up to Biscuit City Road where I turned around after three miles. Right at the turn around there were green eyes looking at me. Mountain lion? No, I think it was a dog of some kind. Still creepy and I kept looking over my shoulder for a couple minutes to make sure it wasn't following me.
I just signed up for the Old Mountain 5k Trail Race this Sunday. Looking forward to racing with WTAC again.

Did a short run this morning in the trails near Fidelity. Took the old road/trail that leads to Rocky Hill Rd out and then ran the Hanton City trail back. This is a nice wide trail with big hills and good footing. I had my fancy schmancy ankle brace on and there were no issues with the foot. A good sign. It was nice running offroad in the cold with the bright sun.
