Now on to concentrating on the Ragnar Richmond Trail race...less than 2 weeks away! Unfortunately, on Tuesday after the last half my right inner ankle started hurting. I am not sure what I did to it - maybe turned it a bit during the race? - but I don't really remember. I had to forgo a 2-a-
day run that I had planned for Friday because I was afraid of injuring it further. It felt a lot better by Saturday so I taped it up and went for a nice trail run (easy 4.5) that morning. The tape and long compression socks helped it to feel more supported and it went fairly well. I was so thankful that I was able to get out there!
It felt stiff last night but not paiful like in previous days. I want to try and use my head lamp for a few more runs to practice that again if possible. Right now the logistics of camping are what I have been worrying over. I am the team captain so I have organized the team order and also the sign-up sheets for what we are bringing. I am hosting a planning meeting this week in order for us all to get together and discuss things like when we will go down to set up camp, what we will bring to eat, which gear we will still need, etc. I am not really a camper ("glamping" is more my speed) so that part makes me more nervous than the actually running. That and the lack of sleep we'll get during that 24 hour period of time. I can't think of a better group of ladies to spend this time with though! We will definitely make the best of it and will enjoy each other's company! Can't wait to earn the title of Ragnarian!
