Ughhhh.....I'm feeling a bit defeated today. My ankle (the one I got the stress fracture in) has been aching just a bit. Sometimes, I wonder if it is a phantom ache or for real! But I've been coming back so slow (I haven't increased my speed more than 10% a week, shoes are good, rest week every 3 weeks), so I don't know how I would have refractured it.
I had planned on doing my first speed workout of the season (4x400). I probably shouldn't have done it today...I wasn't in the right frame of mind, I ran it alone, the wind was out of control, and it was speed.
But I ran to the track and battled the wind and it wasn't the best workout ever.
WU - 1 mile
CD - 1 mile
I wanted to do more of a warm up and cool down, but it was windy and raining and I was feeling a bit grumpy about the situation.
I think I will take the next day or 2 off just to see how things feel.
