Once more, with feeling

I got out today, in a breezy 62° afternoon, and managed 5K in the neighborhood.  My ankle hurt for awhile, and at 1.5 miles, the ball of the left foot (behind the big and index toes) felt somewhere between numb and mushy.  But, I was able to squeak out a 5K without a whole lot of mental gymnastics. (My time was only 38:09, so I wasn't asking for much.)  I stretched the ankles afterwards, and iced the inside of the left ankle pretty good.  Hopefully, I can get another run in over the weekend.

Also, the kids have agreed to participate in their first training run for the Goblin Gallop (Oct. 31st) this weekend.  This should be entertaining - I can hear the excuses and complaints already. :)

Keep your fingers crossed for my feet and ankles!


  1. Do you actually dress in costume during the Goblin Gallop? I hear there are a few races where you do it in costume and prizes are based on your costume selection (best costume, scariest etc) with a few prizes based on time.

    Slowly rehab the ankle, don't overdo it. You will be back to 100% in no time. I know it can be frustrating, but stick with it!!!

  2. hope the ankle holds up. I feel your pain.

  3. Hey Dave, how you been?? Miss seeing your updates... hope running is going well for you!!
