Day 10: 3 miles and a narrow miss by BMW

Tonight I ran 3 miles. The weather was perfect, I was well-hydrated and had lots of carbs to burn, yet it wasn’t a fantastic run. Isn’t that funny? When you think you’re going to have a great run, it turns out to be the shits! I guess it’s a good reminder that every day isn’t going to be a great day and you just need to keep plugging away at it.  There were several times tonight that I just wanted to quit because I just wasn’t in a good groove; wasn’t feeling it – but I am stubborn and kept going (even after getting lost twice!)

Here are my stats:

  • Distance: 4.85 km
  • Time: 30:26
  • Pace/Km: 6:17
  • Best Pace: 5:32

I do have to report that my right ankle is really tight – not necessarily sore, but feels like it should be stretched. Anyone have any good stretching ideas? I’m not sure what to do about it; I definitely favoured it while running and tried not to put too much weight on it. Any help would be great!

 

Finally, when I was cooling down and crossing at a well-lit intersection (wearing my reflective jacket) I was almost got taken out by a BMW! Now, generally I wouldn’t be so judgemental (BMW one day, Yukon the next) but this is the SECOND time in two weeks I’ve almost been hit at a crosswalk by one. I can see if I was crossing on a no-walk light or jay-walking, but I wasn’t!!

Anyway, I am pleased that tonights run is over 🙂 And tomorrow is the last run before rest day – YAHOO! Hope everyone is having a fantastic week. Now off to catch up on Real Housewives of New Jersey (don’t judge me.)
