6 days to tc 10
It's safe to say that I've been focused on other things besides running this past week, but with the TC 10 Mile looming, it's time to seriously consider my options.
I tried running yesterday for the first time in 10 days. Verdict: Not good. I ran 5 miles at a normal pace and felt pain in my Achilles for most of it, but kept thinking that it would loosen up. I iced when I got home, but in the hours post-run, even walking was painful. It feels okay today, but I think "racing' the TC 10 Mile on Sunday is out of the question. I would like to at least run it, but I'll see how the rest of the week plays out.
One thing I haven't tried yet is taping my ankle. I've used KT Tape in the past for knee pain, which seems to help, so I'm hoping that will be enough to at least get me to the start- and finish- next weekend.
