A pretty good week that ended poorly. We'll see how poorly tomorrow and the next few days.

My long run today was 21 miles and after 13 (which I did aerobically in 1:4X), the wheels came off. My left ankle/foot has been odd for the past 2 months or so. Felt good this week after I took Wed. off, but today was nasty.

It was a flat pavement 21 miles. Do not underestimate the pavement. I was begging for hills. I got some at mile 14 (500 ft vert TOTAL) and felt relieved. Then it was back to the grind. Uhhg.

Also, I wore my Nike Lunars which are OLD NOW. So, I just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow and the next few days. As I said in my training log, "the foot is raised like this Pliny the Elder to my lips."

Once I have my wits about me, I'll post a little more.


  1. How does the foot feel on the ups? Can you do some quality uphill stuff while taking it easy on the downs/flats?

  2. Went and bought 2 pairs of "once worn" shoes to train in. The foot feels a lot better today. A little sensitive. I just need to wear real shoes and stay on the trail/grass.

    The good news is I was so comfortable yesterday. . . until one of my wheels mcqueened.
    That flat stuff is brutal!
