Day 49 - Goofy Ankles, Personal Records and Epsom Salts

March 27, 2013          243.2 lbs

Today I ran for the majority of forty-five minutes. Still a little worried about my goofy ankle, I was cautious of my stride and pace. I started with a five minute walk to warm up followed by my rehab running technique of running for ten minutes and walking for one and repeating the run/walk until time is up.

I discovered that if I concentrated on turning my foot slightly inward while doing my forefoot running, my ankle didn't hurt. Though I expected it to at any minute, it never did. Pain free run. As I write this a few hours later, I don't have any soreness. I'm going to ease back into going farther in the next run.
I almost missed it but while uploading my Garmin metrics file into Strava, I noticed that I had a tiny medal next to the activity. By clicking it, I discovered that I had PR'd, (personal record) while running tonight. I'm still unclear exactly where and how long but hey, that's cool!

The funny thing is, I wasn't trying at all. I was only focused on staying in Zone 2 and not messing up my ankle again. It's now 4:29 am and I'm considering another round of these.

That's right, Epsom Salts!
