New 16K Route; New Pain in Ankle!

Last night I added about 2K to my 14K/8.7M route, bringing the distance up to about 16K/10M. I finished the first 8K with a pace of 5:38/K (9:04/M). At this point I turned off my normal trail and took an extra loop on one corner so can only guesstimate on the rest of the run. I ran a total of 1:35:25 in any case, it probably was slightly further than 16K. I want to check this out with my bicycle this weekend.

I am trying to bring my mileage up to about 64K/40M per week for a normal week and 75K/46M on a long run week (every 2nd).

In comparison, with the training for my first marathon in May I ran an average of 56K/35M per week during a normal week and up to 63K/39M on long run week.

I'm hoping the added mileage will help me hold up during the second half of the marathon in September.

Monday I tripped over a piece of wood in my workshop and twisted my ankle some. It didn’t bother me on my run that night, but the last couple days I have had pain when I walk up and down stairs. Tuesday night I didn’t notice any pain when I ran (27 min.), so I tried it again last night. No pain when I run, I don’t even notice anything out of the ordinary. It only seems to be when I walk up and down stairs. Strange! In any case I think I will just do my upper body weight training tonight and not run. Tomorrow (Friday) is rest day so I can stay off my feet a little more. I would like to do a medium run 22K/13.6M Saturday morning, but if the ankle still seems to be sore than I will cut this down, or maybe even not run :-0

I am getting my weight back under control, I gained a couple pounds last weekend on our mini-vacation. One more pound and I’ll be back where I left off last Thursday. Long sigh!

Comments:
So the pain is in the bend, not the pressure placed on the foot itself? Hmmm. at least you can run. But do take care.
 
I so hate losing weight I've already lost! grrrrr

That's weird about your ankle...take care.
