PM: 5 miles

Today was the first day running without the brace, AND the first day with my watch back. The plan was to run for 30 min and then to the next mile so ended up with 5 miles.  The ankle wasn't feeling bad, but it wasn't feeling great either. I think I might bring back the brace for next week. 

Lungs were feeling great until the last mile, but other than that I was feeling good.

PM: 3 miles + core

Today was the first day running in my brace again and honestly I don't think it helped very much. While running it felt like it was restricting blood flow out of my foot and ankle which really made it uncomfortable. I decided to stop at 3 miles both because of the discomfort and not wanting to push my ankle too far too early. I think if I keep wanting to run with a brace I'll have to go and buy a brace that will both support my ankle and allow blood flow. Other than that I felt great while running. I was happy about the pace (7:40 per mile) and glad that I was able to start slower and keep it down. Was honestly kinda bummed I had to end early though, but I know it'll be better for me in the long run.

After I got home I did a small core workout which included:

Push ups Sit ups Weighted squat (20 lbs) Weighted calf raises (40 lbs)
100 100 56 80

Felt good during it, but I will for sure be sore tomorrow. Hoping to start doing these more often during the week until I get to a point where I can start doing more, but for now we'll keep it simple. Another thing I'd like to start doing consistently as well is strengthening exercises (for tendons and bones and such). Unfortunately I was not the best at this in high school, but I've made it a goal to be better. If anyone has any tips or favorite exercises they would be much appreciated.

PPM: 3 mile walk

Walked around my neighborhood for 3 miles to walk to stiffness out of my legs. This is another thing I'd like to do more of. I feel like it gives my legs a chance to work out the lactic acid built up from my eariler workouts. Also it's a nice way to enjoy the summer nights.

After my walk I came home and stretched out before bed.

PM: 4 miles

Kinda had a crazy day today. I slept through my alarms and was late for work which made for a very rushed morning. But after a tiring day at work I came home, did some stretching and pounded out 4 miles. I ran to a nearby elementary school and ran laps in their small grass field to try and get a softer surface, but after getting sick of that decided to explore more of Provo. I did notice though that while running in the grass, I felt my ankle more than just running on the asphalt. Anyway, I went out and ran more of the Provo neighborhoods. I'm gonna have to find some new places to run. I think Provo is a little too flat for me. The ankle did pretty good throughout the run. No major pains or worries which I am glad about. Still happy about my pace (7:49 per mile). Made the last mile all downhill so that my legs got moving faster without the added stress. I think that pace is the best place for my ankle to be pushed right now so I'll probably try to stay in that range for the next couple of weeks.

PPM: 2 mile walk

Finished off the night with a nice 2 mile walk around Provo and some stretching before getting into bed.
