Thanks man. Yeah you're right, ankle ligaments healing is weird foggy and sneaky lol.
It is much much better already. Kept wearing compression ankle sleeve 24/7 except from the 30 minutes every night that i would ice it. I can jog now but not run, if a lot of load is applied under the wrong angle, it gives this sharp intense pain. Its vulnerable to re--injury which is the worse.
No rush at all.

Double training, lolwhat?
Sprained ankle is perfectly fine for low-effort stuff, didn't bug later either. But its still tender, i don't trust to push it yet. Its awfully hot anyway, no intention to push in that heat.

5 July

Run 6K @ 34:57 (5:49 pace)
Low aerobic zone jog 3K @ 28:24 (9:28 pace )

Light night breeze made this somewhat pleasant (feels like temp was still 34'C / 93'F at 11pm) , so i was instantly faster (5K split 5:47 vs last week's  5.55 )

14 July

Easy run 8K @ 49:20 ( 6:10 pace )
Low aerobic zone jog 2K @ 19:40 ( 9:50 pave )

Chose to go a bit slower for a bit longer in the main run. Makes more sense in that heat.

And then i noticed this! How insanely crazy is it that i chose to do the exact same change on the exact same day 1 year ago???  :o  :o  :o
14 July

Easy run 8K @ 50:09 ( 6:15 pace )
Low aerobic zone run 2.5K @ 23:34

Finally actively regulated my pace to the heat ( again 30'C/86F and 65%RH ). Worked good, i lately gave up at fifth or sixth km @ 5:50 , now i did 8K , 10% slower for 40-50% more distance, good trade-off.

Slow AF but it is what it is, i did enjoy the workout.

Haha you're having a crazy week. Seems like there's a glitch in the matrix.

Easy run 5K @ 29:34 ( 5:54 pace )
Low aerobic zone jog 3.65K @ 35:09 ( 9:38 pace )

Too hot, too humid, too de-trained to make anything worthy of this workout, besides doing it.
