Another 10k, a good run I think!

After my rubbish short 3k run on Sunday hubs said he would come out on my 7k run today, yes a running partner yippee! He slowed his pace for me and we were doing really well at 4 miles so he said we should follow the 10k route and stop when we felt we needed to. I was good, my weak ankle had ached but improved so the challenge was on. I used my mantras 'keep calm and keep going' and 'power like a panther ' (thanks ju-ju) and they worked! We got to about 8k when I had to stop for traffic. When I stepped off the curb I misjudged it and I twinged my ankle and SI joint, arghh. But I kept going as hubs was off and caught him up. At 9k he was done but I couldn't not to the 10k, it was only around the block.......so I did it again in 1hr 04. I have now got to see what damage I have to my ankle and SI joint......damn those high curbs.
