Twisted my ankle heavily in a pothole. It hurts, but it's not swollen. I twisted my ankles several times in my life. I'm professional in dealing with that...

Rest day

When I studied my training logs from last year, I realized that injuries always occured when I ran close to or over 300 km (186 miles) per month. For 2019, my goal is to run 300 km (186 miles) per month in pre-season and cut back before races to 250 km (155 miles). Speaking of intensity, I am always looking for the green light for my easy runs and the yellow light for my faster runs. I will leave the red light for races.

Just being more consistent (and therefore less injured/sick) will lead me to new heights in mileage.

Since I nearly reached my goal for this month, I will take it very easy and reduce mileage to make sure I am fully recovered when February starts.

Crazy: I'm working in the city 9 miles away and 300-700 feet lower in altitude from home. While in the city there was no or just a little bit of snow, I ran on 6-8 inches here and in addition, the wetness froze up again...No, as a runner I don't like snow too much!

Tough conditions: 10 inches of snow. After 3 miles, I changed my route to the roads so that I don't slide that much.

We are at 15 inches of snow after a snow storm the whole day. Since I always take a day off per week, it wasn't a hard decision to take it today...
