I have been making strides to get back to my old running self. Unfortunately, my body has been reminding me there is one component in that statement that might cause a problem. "Old" hasn’t exactly been working to my advantage these days.
That left ankle of mine, the one that I sprained in January, has been ensuring that I take my time returning to the road. After a 6 mile hilly run yesterday, my ankle has been aching and urging me to take today off. My training hasn’t even started, yet I’ve already drug out my arnica and ice pack.
This isn’t going to be easy.
