Finished up Week 4, Day 3 today. I don’t know why but I’m getting slower. I know I shouldn’t be worried about speed and I can cover a 2 mile distance but it’s still bugging me. I ran 14.23 today.
This morning I took my son and a friend and dropped them at an amusement park before I ran. When I did that it was overcast and 64 degrees. Just as I got to the lake the sun came out and it was rather hot. This was at 10AM. That’s what I ran in. I am going to do Week 5, Day 1 tomorrow.
Here are some things I don’t know about running yet and I need to research the answers, although some of them are specific only to me:
1. Why has my right ankle suddenly started to ache when I run and after a mile or so it finally stops? It never used to bother me before.
2. Is it normal to run slower when you are running in much warmer weather than what you started?
3. My last couple of runs are starting to feel like work rather than fun. How do I make them more exciting?
But I do love the feeling after I run.
