A Running Attempt

Today didn't go so well. After running for 10 minutes and feeling like my right leg was about to give out, I realized it because I was avoiding the left ankle (aka, the hurt one).

When I tried to focus on running on both legs, my left ankle felt even more tight followed by twinges I didn't appreciate, so I switched to walking. In total, I ran 15 minutes and walked 25 minutes.

I'll rest for another day or two and try again this weekend. I am upset, though, that this sets me back on my 8-week plan.

Net Carbs: 30 grams
Days 'Til 5K: 43

In other news -- 2 issues from my new Running Times subscription came today. I love magazines -- especially subscriptions -- so it didn't take me long to sign up for one. So far, I am intrigued...


  1. Ugh! That's frustrating! I hope your ankle feels better soon! Get your rest and don't stress about having to take a couple days off... it will be worth it.

  2. Dont worry about one run throwing off the 8 week plan. Rest up this weekend and start Monday fresh and recovered.

  3. sorry you did not have a good day give it a day or two

  4. Thanks guys. I am going to take your advice and rest up until Monday and start fresh. I just hope I don't fall behind... :-(
