Day 874 - 5.3 miles. Has my taper strategy been all wrong lately? You betchya. But...my ankle and foot are feeling almost 100% and I'm feeling a lot more confident now that I don't feel borderline injured. On an even brighter note - Jean-Pierre poodle is back in action! He was sick the past few days, but the vet got him feeling better and he was spunky enough to run! I'm pretty relieved.
