Ups and Downs

This week was a bit weird. I took Sunday and Monday off - completely. Tuesday, I ran 6:30 - 6:50 miles around Wash Park for 5+ miles and felt great. Wednesday, I felt Tuesday, but I took it easy and felt okay.
Thursday, DTR ran at Lair O' The Bear. I love that trail and wanted to bust lose on it. Instead, I ran 3.5 miles hoping to warm up and feel good but felt worse. I felt Tuesday and Saturday all over again. My left ankle has been hurting since my snowy climb near Montezuma a couple of weeks ago, and it felt worse Thursday.
Friday was a slow jog around Wash Park, followed by two laps of walking.
So now it's the weekend and I would normally do something long. No way! I have another 50M in a week. Somehow I have to get my left leg (knee, calf, ankle, foot issues) back to normal in only a week.
After sleeping in (getting out of bed at 8:30am) I'm now headed to Geneva Creek to scope out the eastern regions of my hoped-for race course. I really don't know how much running or hiking I'll do. At least I'll get some altitude.
