I haven’t posted in a few days, almost a week, sorry for anyone who watches and reads this.

Don’t worry, I haven’t missed much.  That ankle pain I had the other day has really been bothering me, so I missed Wednesday’s run for three miles at my race pace.  Not going to the gym, I didn’t get my Crossfit workout in that day either.

Thursday, I pushed through and ran three miles, at a decent pace.  Not great, but I still got it in there.  My ankle did not like me afterwards.  I started the Crossfit WOD for the day too, but I didn’t quite finish it.  I did 21 reps of 75 lb. cleans, and I’m not really sure if I did that right, but it was tough.  I then moved on to do about 10 dips, with no weight assistance.  That wasn’t near as far as I needed, but it was something.

Friday was a rest day, so no run, which was good, because I still had a pain in my ankle.  Same as Wednesday, I missed the gym, so I missed the Crossfit.  I’m such a slacker.

Saturday was the day for my long run.  I did five miles on Saturday at roughly a 9:00 pace, so I was pretty happy with that.  I used some softer shoes because of my ankle, but that didn’t really help.  It’s actually caused me to hobble around quite a bit today (Sunday).  There was no Crossfit workout on Saturday, so I didn’t do anything else.

Today there was a Crossfit workout, but Brittany and I had some things to do around the house, and I didn’t make it to the gym.  I start back on some military duty tomorrow, so I’m not exactly sure what my schedule is going to be the next couple of weeks.  I hope to at least keep my running schedule up, and get this ankle pain to go away.

I hope everyone else is doing well!

This day couldn’t have come at a better time.  It’s Friday, so it’s the end of the work week, I’ve done nine miles this week, so far, so I needed a little rest, not to mention, the filthy fifty kicked my butt.  All of it was definitely worth it, it was a much fitter week than I’ve had in a while.  But, I feel like resting today, so it couldn’t be a better day to have the day off from both workout routines.

Tomorrow is back to it, I have a four mile run and whatever Crossfit routine they plan for anyone following that plan.

Not only that, this is going to be a busy weekend.  I have to paint one of the rooms in the house, and a whole lot of school work to finish.  I’m not excited for any of it honestly, but it will all pay off soon.
