5 miles today. I'm a little surprised at this training schedule (it's time based intervals right now) but it backs off after this week and starts in on mileage. looking forward to a little break but i think i'm acclimating well.
How many miles did you run today? - Page 826
I managed to roll my ankle - not badly, but just enough to flare up something I did to it a few years ago - when I was on a short run a week and a half ago. A few days ago it still hurt a little, but the pain was pretty dull. I decided to go for the same short run and have been regretting it since then. It hurt a little while I was running and considerably more after I got home.
I'm hoping to find out more about:
- How long I need to rest before I try running again
- What if any limitations I should put on other activities (e.g., low-impact cardio)
- Whether there's any sort of compression sleeve or other support I should use
- What exercises / stretches I can do to help speed recovery
- What exercises / stretches I can do to help prevent reinjury
I'm not much of a runner, but I found a local running club (Fishtown Beer Runners) that I'd like to participate in if I can stay healthy enough.
I'll probably go to a doctor if it doesn't get better soon, but the time and hassle involved in regular doctor's or PT appointments can be a drag.
10.2 miles yesterday and only 4.5 miles today. I was going for 15 miles but the heat got to me. I am just not built for it as my sweat rate is way higher than my intake rate so it is hard to keep up. I may try to find something longer in Jan-Mar as summer is just not a great time for a 6'1", 180lbs guy to run long in.
I will still keep running but going to dial back the mileage to roughly 40ish a week.
