Success! I took my first ginger steps this morning on an easy 4 miler. I met up with Rich at 6:30AM for a slow 4 miler around the UAH campus. This would be the first test of my ankle and the new ankle brace. I am happy to report that I was able to run only with slight discomfort that was mostly caused by the actual brace, not by the injury. However, I also realize that I will not be able to run without a brace or some other stability device any time soon. I just hope I'm able to continue to run and train, period.

Rich and I ran 4.3 miles in 36 minutes, not bad and on track with my slow target pace. Temps were in the low 50s with a little mist in the air. I have to say I felt pretty good, I just continue to worry about my prospects of running on trails without a sturdy brace. Either way, right now, I just want to try to refocus my marathon training and considering that this week is kind of a "layoff week", maybe I need to start considering a secondary goal for the Rocket City Marathon, e.g. just be happy with a PR or even finishing respectably. For now, I plan to get back to my proper training asap, speed work and all.
