Timing: 48:40 for 6:08 min/km pace
This was a test run for my less-than-stellar ankle and it failed the test. Miserably. Pain was my company this morning, apart from Kenny of course. Such a new fellow – giving up his training pace to run at tortoise speed with me and not forgetting the prayers at the end. PTL.
It was painful from the first step and we took it cautiously; the downhills which are usually my favourite turned out to be my biggest enemy this morning.
I was able to increase the pace in this lap and surprisingly, it was less painful running at a faster pace. For some odd reason (which I found out later was due to a tight quad), Kenny drop off after the turnaround.
It was perfect running temps this morning after the overnight rain and I would have enjoyed the run if not for the wonky ankle. Can I request for healing prayers from everyone?
