Warm up barefoot lap. Decided to concentrate on marathon pace, next time will be easy pace. Today felt good though, not too strained.
Ran 3 miles on the track in:
Left and ran the cross country course, which I always run part of it and I still need to figure out what the course actually is. The next two miles were:
Around the end of mile 5 I slowed down for this weird little stretch where I must keep going off course to kind of get back towards the track. Every single time I've crossed this little area I've rolled my ankle. So this time I slowed down and tried to be careful... and I still rolled it!
Anyways I ran another half mile at a more relaxed pace to the track. I took off my shoes to do some barefoot running but my knee kept cracking. It doesn't hurt at all, but I didn't like that at all. Well I know ky ankle was cracking, but I'm fairly certain my knee was too. So idk what's going on there but I will proceed with caution. Probably nothing serious. Stopped running for the day just in case.
Solid workout! The days and weeks are really starting to blend together at this point. My thesis is going a little slower than I'd hoped. My new goal is to propose at the beginning of next semester. But I have an idea I like, the first 10 pages are looking good, I have a great annotated bibliography, and I have a good idea for how to put it all together. I think things are about to pick up again with that. I really just need to get my study design worked out with my advisor and then finish writing and go through revisions!
