Today was a group run. We met downtown at Five Points and ran 6 miles. Linus went with me and thoroughly enjoyed himself. He was definitely a hit. He always gets lots of attention when we go out.

About halfway through the run I almost fell and twisted my ankle. I was running on the sidewalk because the road was really uneven. I must have not been paying enough attention and tripped on something. My ankle rolled, but luckily I was able to catch it before I fell down. We had a water stop soon after that where I stopped and got some. I offered some water to Linus but he just wanted to keep running so we were off again. There were about five girls that turned off because they were only running 5 miles. Then it was me, Linus and one other guy. At that point I think we had about two miles left. We talked to each other the whole way so that was a good distraction from the last couple of hills.

I finished feeling pretty good. I mapped the route on and if I've done this right, it will show up in the post.

Next week's running schedule:

Day 1: 3
Day 2: 5
Day 3: 3
Day 4: 5
Day 5: 7

I'm going to go ahead and do day 1 tomorrow. Some people from our group are running on the Lakeshore running trail and doing three miles. So that's the plan for tomorrow.
