Today was scheduled to be a 7-8 mile quality run. My hopes and prayers have been that I can solve the problem of my painful ankle and calves. This morning's run proved to be an answered prayer! For some reason, I had no pain in my ankle and consequently my calves felt comfortable. Since this was supposed to be a quality run I decided to do fartleks. I set the Garmin to alert every 1/2 mile and I ran that distance at an 8:30 pace or better and the next 1/2 mile at a 9:30 easy pace. I did this for most of the 10 miles I covered in 1:29 for a 8:54 average. Great run this morning! Perfect weather, could not have asked for better.
