Have decided that I should be allowed to go for a run after hitting 1000 words every day. I might not always *want* to, but today is so gloriously sunny that I couldn't really help myself. Did the same as yesterday, but even slower. Still kept to the spirit of an out-and-back though.

p.s. Saw Csaba Lazslo heading out for a run as I was coming back. Didn't say anything to him, but wished I had now!
Wanted to do something to make up for the fact that I am not running in the Hawick 10k today like I had hoped. I didn't really want to push my ankle too much too soon either, so that ruled out anything on uneven terrain, so I settled on the usual 4 mile out-and-back along the canal. Gorgeous evening for it too - I needed my sunglasses for a change! Ankle held up well - a slight itchy/burny sensation for some of the first mile, but nothing after that. Now that I am home I notice it's slightly swollen, but I can't remember what it looked like before the run so I can't tell if it's a reaction or not.
