here comes the rain again

Today was an uneventful run, though I turned it into the biggest drama ever since it's been raining for hours. It wasn't really raining when I was running.
4 miles recovery pace with 6 (I did 5 oops)x 100 strides. Ankle started stiff, no surprise there. When I last ran with Loren she said my form looked fine so I'm not worried about it.
My HR was a bit high which I attribute to humidity, abnormal sleep, and maybe being a bit dehydrated this morning.
Tomorrow is my teams cross country meet. Now I love XC but I'm a little meh about this. For one, it's been raining like hell. While the course usually drains quickly, I want to be careful with this paw which sorta bumms me out since, I love XC. This is also suppose to be a tune up race. But let's face it...I'm a little over 2 weeks out from my race. What is a tune up really going to tell me at this point? If I dont hit it, I can't do anything about it. So, I'll see how I'm going to run it in the morning.
Then Sunday, 18 miles. The plan calls for 16 but since I missed my 20 last week and NYRR is being kind enough to throw an 18  miler right out my front door, 18 it is. I will run this at long run pace, maybe picking it up at the end or at least working the hills.

Have fun tomorrow, whatever you decide. Do what feels good and take care of that ankle, either way.
