May 10th:  Trying Again

Miles Today: 19.4 + 0.30 from hostel

Mile Marker: 721.8

The hostel I was zeroing at wasn't particularly great.  I was anxious to get out of there and head to Daleville.  My sister sent my new shoes there, and I really need those shoes.  My current shoes felt like they were starting to die just after 300 miles.  They will have around 400 on them by the time I switch.  I'm hoping they are a leading factor in my ankle pain, because it would be an easy fix.

I didn't really have any issues hiking today.  I took more breaks in the later half of the day to let my feet rest.  The trail wasn't particularly difficult, and there were only a couple of small technical sections.  Hopefully that keeps my ankle happy overnight.  I slept with it elevated last night and will again tonight.

If all goes to plan, I'll nearo into Daleville tomorrow and stay in a motel.  There I can keep my leg elevated, iced, and rested in a real bed.  If that doesn't work I'm probably going to find a doctor to check.  I've got to assume it's just an overuse injury, but the thought of taking off an extended time to rest isn't appealing.  But ultimately I'll do whatever I need to do.
