Re: ankle pan -- I thought my New Balance 860v6s were shot and switched to new Saucony Omnis on Friday and Saturday. While the shoes helped, the pain was still there (it's not terrible and doesn't last, just annoying), so I think it's time for new insoles. I don't track my milage on those, so who knows the last time I bought a pair. I think I'll mark the starting date on my next set...

Anyway, (!) Thursday and Friday were relaxed 3 milers. I considered skipping Friday, but I was 3 miles from a 100 mile month, so... I ran after work between downpours and had another enjoyable time. The new path is fantastic. It's only a mile, but it connects to a longer trail and a great neighborhood. Plus, it's uphill out and downhill back, so I always run negative splits. ;)
|Bath time! (Tobias does not like bath time.)|
Saturday's group 12 was nice and cool. I will probably switch pace groups next season, but I suppose if I start running full marathons* I'll stick with the 10:45 pace (or slower). After the run I cleaned the house and dog, pampered myself a bit, and watched the Ohio State game while Alex went to it with his family. We went out for Italian after they returned from the game, then he and I came home and watched Central Intelligence. It was stupid, but funny. (*did I just say that? Uh oh.)

Odds and ends:
I ended the week with 240ft in elevation gain. Not terrible, but I did not top my 535ft from last week. I missed my mid-week hill repeats due to storms.
I signed up for a bunch of races this weekend: a beer run next week, a Thanksgiving race, two winter trail runs (10k, 20k), and 2017's Medina Half. Alex signed up for all but the half, so I'm looking forward to running with him over the winter!
Are you loving the cooler weather? Did it rain a bunch in your area?
Have you scheduled any races for 2017? Which ones?
