Comments: The whole run I felt good, other when I stepped on a rock/big pebble and twisted my right ankle around mile 1.5. I think I recovered fast enough without pulling anything important and was able to put in my full 4.
BUT, I really need to start running with my contacts in. At work I usually wear glasses, just for the convenience of being able to take them off whenever I need to (like when I work on my computer), so when I go downstairs to run I just leave them in my gym bag. *sigh* I did not see the rock/big pebble though and I noticed I am having a hard time recognizing people in the gym, they are all wishy washy! lol So, for the sake of safety I’ll be wearing contacts to work on run days from now on.
It was incredibly cold outside compared to what I am used to. The wind didn’t help matters much, and for the first 1/2 mile my teeth were louder than my feet. At the end of the run though everything felt really good. I like running in cold weather and my time shows it. Hopefully I’ll be able to repeat that performance during the Flying Feather 4 miler on Turkey day next month.
