Coming off of the good news about my ankle, I felt really positive about my runs this past week. I managed to fit 3 runs in and even though 1 workout was only 20 minutes, I still felt good about it because it was time on my feet. Got some Sole inserts for my shoes and had the doc heat mold them to my feet. I did my first big run in them and they seemed to help support my feet and I felt more stable overall. New blister spots though... so that's fun. Just need to stay the course and make small corrections as I go.
