Speaking of running coming easy, it definitely didn't tonight. I had the same ankle problems today that I did during the Lavender 5K over the summer. I feel fine now (as I did that day) but it was really annoying when I was going through it. The pain really climaxed during the end of the first five-minute burst of running, and it was then that I turned off the C25K app and just ran/walked at my own pace. I still did almost 2 miles, but it wasn't as much as if I had stayed on the plan.
I am going to try dynamic stretching on Wednesday and see if that solves some of my problems, and probably stay on Week 4 for another week and a half. This is where I start hitting walls, much as I would like to NOT hit them right now.
It kind of put me in a bad mood, which was even worse because today is Valentine's Day and everyone just assumed I was bitter. Really, no. But running is the thing that normally makes me feel good, and today I felt defeated by it. I'm recovering, though, and it's nothing a viewing of some sappy romantic movie before bed can't remedy. :)
