My first blog on the new forum and my first run since I had to take a brake from January 15th with minor ankle pain.
I have never had a lot of ankle pain, the most it has been at is probably 4 out of 10 and I actually started typing this blog 2 weeks ago when I was going to start back when the pain was down to 1 out of 10. After some thought I deleted my pre-run thoughts and told myself it was too soon!!
The past couple of days I haven't had any pain issues, so went out for a slow 2 mile run. I've got a new smart phone so used the Endomondo app...details are:
distance: 2.10 miles
avg. speed: 4.79 mph
avg. pace 12:32 min/mile
calories: 258 kcal
I'm pretty happy with that after 6 and a half weeks off and I hardly walked over the first 3/4 weeks of the ankle pain.
Other news...I am getting my knees assessed by my physio tomorrow so he can advise me on how much is too much running with hypermobility syndrome, which should be interesting since my last assessment was in 2004 when I wasn't interested in running.
