Yesterdays run was a struggle. Heavy legs, plodding along on the road--just not a good run. At 3km I left the road and took a sharp turn to the left and finished running thru the corn field.
Immediately, I can feel my pace quicken and I instantly feel lighter. I needed the break from the road. I had been strictly road running for the past few weeks.
Timewise, yesterday only allowed for 5.5km and today, I had an appointment in the morning, which I struggle after to get out to run. Paxton was up at 4am last night (grr) so I was tired and not feeling 100%. I figured I'd aim for 5k and anything over that would be a bonus.
Scott told me to rest today, but honestly I ALWAYS feel better after a run/workout, so I went.
I put in 8.5 km and feel WAY better. I stayed only in the fields and trails today, and worked a couple of huge hills. I didnt aim for any pace, just to run and have the time on my legs. I didnt bring water with me, which I dont mind if I am not working too hard.
My ankle was feeling better, though I have been noticing it on walking downstairs. I am pretty sure I tweeked it again in the field yesterday on a rut. It was mild today and a little muddy and slippery.
