January 14th (Tuesday): 7+ miles (46:35) in the evening. Standard day.
January 15th (Wednesday): Decided to take the day off. Listened to my body because the ankle felt like I rolled it. Moving the ankle laterally hurt a bit. Foam rolled and iced in the evening.
January 16th (Thursday): Out to hit up all the spots we usually run in 1 run. 11.7 miles (76:08) with the last 2 miles in 10:35. Solid run and ankle was good to go. Iced after as a precautionary action.
Starting to do this routine a couple times a week.
January 17th (Friday): 8+ miles (53:52) after work. Up to Saratoga for the work holiday party (better late than never). Bowling and food. Rocked it for the 1st game and best score ever by like 40 or 50 pins. Bowled a 190. No big deal.
4 strikes in a row? Boom.
January 19th (Sunday): Joe Benny Pancake Run in Albany at 8:30am. Some cornbread for breakfast. Double 7.5 mile loop. 15 miles (1:33:11). 1st loop: 49:32. 2nd loop: 43:39. Last 8 miles were: 6:30, 6:20, 6:07, 5:34, 5:31, 5:40, 5:48, 5:50. Worked some miles for fun.
USATF award ceremony at Fleet Feet. Carpooled with Renee. Free dinner. Played with the kids (Sydney and Addy) pretty much the whole time. Home to relax and head to bed at a decent hour. Brought home a catering dish of pasta. Ca-chang! 59 miles for the week with a day off.
