It's debatable at this point which is harder on my ankle, riding or running. So I probably should have taken the week off from both, but I'm not good at that. So I've been riding. I even gave up the 5k race yesterday, which was disappointing, but probably the better choice.
This week :
M : Pub Run 3.1 / 8:36 / 0 ft
T : bike 20.5 / 18 mph / 1499 ft
F : bike 24.3 / 17.5 mph / 1847 ft
Sa : bike 27.3 / 16.2 mph / 2283 ft
total run miles : 3.1
total bike miles : 72.2
My ankle actually felt really good on Monday's run. So good I was really tempted to run further, but I decided to be smart and stop after 2 laps like everyone else.
Tuesday's ride was good, and my ankle didn't seem to be strained too badly, but then I was stretching afterwards and apparently moved my foot just the wrong way, because my ankle was suddenly filled with stabbing pains. So that set me back a good bit, and resulted in 2 days off.
My back did some complaining on Friday's ride, and even more on Saturday's ride. Not really surprising, given how many miles I rode this week after not riding much at all for months. I'm going to have to stretch it a lot more until it gets into better bike shape. Which hopefully won't take long, because Spring is here and I will be on the bike more often! (I think.)
The world hasn't turned green yet, but it was warm and sunny all week!
