Today's track club run was supposed to be a 2:15 hour run, and, at my pace, is twice around the perimeter of Coronado - which is the purple line on the map. Even though I visited my chiropractor yesterday and he put my ankle back into place, I'm still sensitive. I decided to just run once around the island. I was a little torn about going around only once because I like this particular route, the weather was perfect for running (cool with cloud cover) but my ankle was arguing with the rest of my body -- and my ankle won. I've learned to listen to those nagging body parts... I was pleased with my 1:07:39 time for just one trip (about a 10K) around the island.
Either a lot of people were beat up from last week's 15K or they had something else going on. We were missing a lot of our usual runners. We had decent contingent of runners, but just about half, and we still made for a large group.
I also had a quick assessment from a massage therapist who was there for the track club. Apparently, what ever they're doing at rehab is working because I'm not as off as I thought I was. I always thought/knew I had crappy posture, but the guy seemed to think I was OK. It has been a while since anyone associated with anything medical or therapeutic said I was OK.
I thought this was cool:

Not much else to report on. I have a rather uneventful weekend ahead of me, and maybe that's a good thing.
