I got the "long" rolling run done, per my game-plan mentioned on Sunday (hill work-out Monday, ~14 mile run Tuesday). I got them both done. Today was actually just over 13 miles and 1200ft of climbing. In terms of the quality of the run, it was terrible. But I got it done. The rolling trail I wanted to run was swamped. I did not want to stop at every dip and gingerly tip-toe around standing water. So, most of the run was on road and grass. Really, it was bad. Beat me up a little (not used to that kind of run), BUT I got it done. Allergies were giving me hell, as well. Wahhhhh!
So, the rest of the week will consist of 5-8 mile runs, a little climbing, a little leg turn-over. Just keep things loose and light.
I think the other part of the sluggishness of today's half marathon was yesterday's run.
Probably my biggest 2-day total in a looooong time, the week of the race. Ha!
I have 4 days until the gun goes off. I should be just fine.
Oh and my ankle feels better. After the 13 mile road run. Ha! Last night I took some advil, kept the foot elevated some, and wore my compression socks. Nothing fancy. Just keeping an eye on it and doing what I can.
