Monday I had a bad run in that my left ankle was so achy painful with my new neutral trainers that I had to walk every mile for a short while and I only managed 4 miles. It is an issue that is getting worse with my new trainers 😭 This is clearly not good when I have been running 6.5-10mile runs. I decided today to go back to my old stability trainers and risk a blister. I went out earlier with a 4.5 miler on the agenda so no water faffage needed. Onwards I ran towards 0.5 miles and my ankle ache started on the left. But it did not get unbearable which was a good sign so I carried on my run until the major traffic lights. I had to wait so popped my Garmin on pause. Off we went over the lights pressing my Garmin as I go. Down a slight decline through the university for 0.5 miles and ankle wasn't too bad. Quick check of the garmin and it's flipping off, Noooo. I turn it back on and curse the lose of data recording. Down a large hill and back up the other side, round the church to the zebra crossing. A car went straight over then I crossed but the ambulance, realising I am on the crossing, screeches to a halt, as do I waiting for a thud. Alas I was lucky and went on my way again. Along streets, passing a man pushing a wheelchair and others going about their day until I reached a busy road to cross. I waited patiently until my time to run across and then continued round the bottom of the common. I have a choice to go along the cemetery road or a new road I don't know. Feeling brave I opt for the parallel new road. It is a nice quiet residential street meandering away from the common, where am I going? I continue to the bottom of the street and assume turning right would be correct. I come to another unexpected crossroad and now feel lost. I recognise the road name but not sure how far away I have run. Oh well I try the right turn (gut instinct) and i follow the path up the gradual incline. At the top I finally see the road I was after (Thank goodness for that) and turn into familiar grounds. Another 1.5 miles of streets and pass the school and I am home. In total I ran 5.6 miles but my Garmin only picked up two runs totalling 5 miles, grr. My ankle pain went once I dodged the ambulance was better in my old shoes rather than in my new shoes. Back home I had a drink, some tea and a banana but whilst faffing with trying to merge my Garmin files unsuccessfully. All of a sudden I hit a sugar dump with headache, shakes and nausea so I ate more food pretty pronto, very odd. Then I went to get changed a realised I had run with my leggings on back to front! What a flipping day of running!
