IMLP2008 training started today. 1st run in a long time and 1st run after the Mojo wipeout on Sunday. I thought I’d start with a goal of 30 minutes, and possibly stretch to 45 depending on how the ‘old-and-busted’ felt.
As I got started, my ankle felt a bit stiff and tight, and the shoe was rubbing a bit where the outside of my ankle was still as bit swollen, but it held up fine. Running felt like there was a bag of rocks strapped to my right ass-cheek. The bouncing around didn’t feel so good, and the glute on that side was almost useless for about 1/2 the run.
But after about 20 minutes, everything started to loosen up, and I went for the longer run, trying to keep the pace moderate.
5.1 miles, 50:08, 9:49 pace. Damn slow, but got ‘er done.
That’s one down 350-odd to go…
