Injury Prone

I started the run with a sore right ankle. It was tight, and not really painful, but aching slightly after karate last night. However 5 minutes in it felt good, and I sped up a little. Then I decided that I should take a few slow days to close out the month and try to heal things up.

I ran my mile, turned around, and started back, and felt a pain in the left calf. Strange as I haven't had anything there in a long time. I shortened my stride, and slowed down, and it was better, but now it's sore, and hard to walk on.

It seems that the closer I get to a year the more little injuries that are cropping up. I think I might close out the next 10 days or so with shorter, slower runs.
