Pounded the pavement during the day. 4 miles. Felt really slow- only remembered later that I donated blood yesterday, so I'm sure that didn't help. I've been having some pretty bad ankle pain for the past few weeks, and today my hips also hurt. My shoes used to last 500 miles, but I think I need to retire them early. The shoes are still my old Pearl Izumi shoes, so manufactured in 2014. I'm sure sitting on a shelf for 7 years doesn't help them. And, I'm about 40 pounds heavier than my lean racing days, also leading to shorter life. Hopefully changing shoes will help with my ankles.
