Went out and was testing how things felt after a few days off. I made it about four miles feeling decent, and then my ankle tendonitis started to hurt, so I took the last two miles pretty slow which helped some. I also had a hard time with the air, which isn't normal.

Went out in the early morning for an easy five. The little bit of snow on the ground helped give my legs some cushion. I realized that the issue with my toe is probably because I am toeing off too much. My ankle really only hurt once, and it was while turning on some hard ground.

The first half of the run was good, but then I had a misfortunate event and then just jogged back and changed as soon as possible. Luckily my leg didn't hurt at all.

I felt my ankle initially and then it acted up a bit at the end. I also aerobically felt tired towards the end of the run.

Ran in the snow storm today. My ankle started to have some dull pain around half way through, but it doesn't really ever get worse. I don't know what to think about it anymore.

Only did five miles because I was feeling my ankle worse than it has been, which was a bummer. I also had one of my top five scares of being hit by a car. That's saying something because I've had a lot of them too.

Didn't run, but tried to do a little bit of strength work, especially for the lower legs.

I had some aches in the lower legs, but the "injury area" didn't bother me at all, which was great. It was also a beautiful morning to be out on the roads. I am excited to hit the training again.

Got up in the morning and ran a few easy miles with Tom. It was pretty cold and humid. We honestly just enjoyed the run and the conversation. My leg felt good during the run. Tom and I did five and then I did a little bit more on my own. The leg felt a little sore afterwards though. I also tried to do a couple of strength things, focusing on the hips and lower calf. They are both feeling really weak.

My leg still isn't 100 percent, so I only did 4. I pushed it a little though so my heartrate was pretty high the whole time. I'm thinking that my shoes I wear around during the day might not be helping the problem. I need to try wearing some different shoes and see if that will help.

School ended up being cancelled, so Tom and I went on a run in the middle of the day. We took it pretty easy, but things felt good and it was good to run with someone.

The legs still felt fine today. I ran with Tom again. We ran in the morning though and the roads were still pretty bad. We couldn't go very fast because we didn't have much traction and our legs were just churning.

Ran mostly with Tom. It was cold, but it felt good to be out on the road in the morning.
