I was able to run a full 5 miles without any pain today so I hope my sore ankle and foot have healed. I sure gave them plenty of rest for about 2 weeks. But I didn't want to take any chances when I have a long list of marathons on my running agenda for 2014. It looks like I can get back to normal training runs now. I will be home again in a few days and then can run outdoors or at least in the Sports Center instead of the treadmill. It just doesn't feel the same to run on the treadmill. I am really looking forward to daily runs on the beach in Hawaii in a couple of weeks too. That thought is especially attractive considering that it is currently 20 below zero Fahrenheit here in Deadhorse at the moment. I could use a little bit of warm for a few days. I'm holding off on the barefoot running until I can give it a try at the Sports Center. I'm using my Blue Hokas until then. They are quite comfy.
