Today my ankles are very sore. Yesterday I added 0.5% incline because there's a 900+ foot incline during the first half of the race. 0.5% makes a big difference! I figured that the incline will actually be 3-4% on the race course, which kinda scares me. So my plan is to run on an incline during my "short" runs so my body won't freak out even more when I race.
Despite my sore ankles, I managed to finish my 2 mile run yesterday in 20 minutes. Today I get to rest and I better enjoy it because tomorrow is my long run. Cheers!
