Training Journal 1/21-1/27

Monday, January 27- Sunday, January 27, 2013: This was a recovery week after HURT.  My sprained ankle was really unstable, so I did a lot of running on the road to make sure that I didn't turn it again.  I also went directly from Hawaii to spending one day at home packing race supplies for the Orcas Island races to going to Orcas Island to help with the race.  It's amazing I fit any running in!
