I had a blast with Chase at the MWC tournament last night even though my Cougs lost. We got home around midnight and I had to work at 9 this morning so I awoke around 5:30 to get my 16 miler in. Instead of doing my normal slow out and fast back I decided to keep an even, strong but easy pace for the whole run.
I went out in 59:34 and back in 58:42 for a total run of 16 miles in 1:58:16 AP 7:24 so I kept it pretty even the whole way even though I had to climb on the way back.
Now for the bad part. I had a big time scare this morning. It was still dark and about a mile and a half into the run I stepped on something and twisted my ankle. It sent quick sharp pains to my ankle and a little to my knee for a little while, but I was able to run it off and within half a mile it didn't bother me any. On the way back I looked to see what it way and it was about a 6 inch mound of asphalt they must have accidentally spilt as they have been working on the roads lately. I iced it after my run and it is definitely tender now along with my knee a bit. Luckily my next run isn't scheduled till Mon. night, so with some RICE over the next couple days hopefully I will fully recover. It sure scared me at first though and I had visions of having to pull out of Boston.
