Christmas Eve 10miler

After my trail run on Sunday my ankle felt very very sore. I iced it and became reacquainted with vitamin I.  It was still sore on monday, but significantly better.  By Tuesday it was back to it's regular achy 3 that it is daily.  Since it didn't feel any worse than it did before, I went out in my parents neighborhood in hopes of tackling the 10 miles I failed to accomplish on Sunday.

I did the first 2.75 before looping back to my parents house to get some water, use the bathroom, and grab my hat since it had started to rain.  

I looped through another "association"  also known as a street in my parents golf community.  My dad said that the 6th hole would have ice & water so I stopped there at mile 5. 

From there, I ran on that side on the neighborhood until I hit mile 7 before looping back to hole 6 so I could snag a bit more water. It definitely helped knowing there was water along the course, despite the run being quite boring.  

The last mile was though, but it wasn't my slowest.  While I know I can race at a faster pace,  I was proud of the fairly even splits I kept throughout this run.  

I am still trying to readjust my running plan since being sick but I still feel pretty confident that it'll work itself out.  Now I can only hope I can get in a 12 and maybe a 14 miler while I'm in Costa Rica for the next few weeks....
