Saturday, October 27th - Workout 197. I ran 4.5 miles in my new Brooks shoes and it felt AWFUL! My feet were in excruciating pain for the first two miles but I pushed through. This one was done outside at my mom's house.
Tuesday, October 30th - Workout 198. I ran 5 miles on the treadmill in my new shoes and it was painful and difficult with the diabetes. I was 110 pre-workout, had 6 shot bloks before starting, at 6 more in the first 4 miles and finished out at 5 miles.
Saturday, November 3rd - Workout 199. My ankles were killing me as I began so I switched back to my old shoes. It didn't really seem to help other than making it easier for me to find my stride. I knew my bloodsugar wouldn't last for a long run so I did 3.1 miles in just under 31 minutes. Today my left ankle in particular is quite sore. Honestly, I should probably go to a doctor, but that's just going to have to wait until Christmas break. In the meantime, I plan to do a lot of ankle strengthening activities.
I have my first 10K on Saturday! I'm super-excited and nervous with these ankles and having only run 5 miles!
