This week definitely wasn't as exciting as last week. I had a good workout on Monday, an ok tempo run on Thursday, and a real tough long run this morning. I planned for a 10-miler up and back down South Mountain. I made it to 9.5, and my ankle started bugging me. I decided I'd better listen to what it was saying, so I walked the rest of the way. That was extremely frustrating. The aching reminds me a lot of the pain Topher was experiencing a couple weeks ago (Is that still bugging you, Topher? Has anything helped?).
On a brighter note, I picked up some new ASICS Gel-Nimbus' today. I usually run in the Cumulus model, but I couldn't pass up a sweet clearance deal on the older model Nimbus. They are a half-size smaller than I usually run in, but still a half-size bigger than my regular shoes. The fit still seems to be pretty good. Anybody else run in these? What do you think of them?
