Today's run was a challenging run. My shins and ankles got very tight again especially my left one despite having done some elaborate stretches beforehand that usually works. I might be suffering a little bit of fatigue so I'm thinking of cutting back last week.
I stopped after the 1st mile and tried to loosen up. I stopped again after the second mile due to a long traffic light. I thought I was going to have to stop after the third mile but I did not and fortunately kept on going.
Anyway, I'm glad I toughed it out and by the last mile I was feeling better and managed to comfortably run 1 MP mile. It was actually a nice morning to run as far as the temp, wind, and humidity go. Although the traffic seemed a little bit more dangerous. I had read some place that pedestrian deaths spike around the time change. Time to be careful.
Average pace: 8:32
