I'm back from vacation, and it was a good one with lots of hiking and long drives, and my ankle actually feels better. I hurt it again about a week ago, which took two days to recover from, but today I was back on the treadmill for a five mile re-introduction run.
The run felt fine, although it was clear my leg muscles weren't really loose enough from all the hiking. I finished in a pedestrian, by design, 8:13 a mile. The real test will be how I respond.
My thoughts are that I will run two days in a row with an off day for a while, and of course taking off the weekends since I don't have access to a treadmill. I can hear God laughing at my plans now.
