Whatever it is, this year was no different....except for my stinking ankle. I PR'd again, this time though, it would be my Personal Record worse run 33:31. I'm not ashamed of it, it is what it is, and I ran 2/3 of it. Let me back up to last weekend.
|9 wks and swollen again.|
Now, I'm doubtful. I hadn't even done anything, except chill out at home without the ankle brace. WTH? So all week, I wondered if I should just bail or walk the whole thing. I decided finally after the swelling went down and some good PT sessions to just go for it and walk the first half of the race and run the second part.

|Probably my strongest finish ever!|
Did I feel it later? Yep. My DH doesn't like the comparison to hamburger with my ankle- but it just felt raw and chewed up inside the joint, and tight and pulling on the outside. Advil and some ice and I'm feeling a bit better today although it's still tender and I won't be running again (until next weekend-that is).
Next up...Follow up with the Dr. tomorrow if we're not snowed in. 8-10 inches of snow forecast-ed for overnight and I have an 8 am appt. Probably going to have to wait on that one.
|So proud of my running partner- 3rd place in the old lady category! JK, Carrie!|
|Ankle day after 5k- not to bad according to the cat.|
