6.5 miles with both of the boys in the double stroller, another 1.5 with Peter (we were going to go longer but we hurried back home so he could use the bathroom), and 4.4 alone.  I did 4 x 400 during the last two miles of the run (69, 71, 72, 72).  400 m rest after rep 1, 500 m rest after rep 2 (awkward road crossing), and 200 m rest after rep 3.

2 x 1 mile at 6 min pace. It felt like a greater effort with the wind (15-20 mph).

My left ankle is giving me a bit of grief again. It's stiff and feels like I have some nerve pain with plantarflexion. Both plantar and dorsiflexion are limited vs. my right ankle. It mostly bothers me when warming up and cooling down (I run backwards for part of my WU and CD to activate my quads, but I feel like I have to slighty limp on my left foot).

8.2 at Highbanks then 5.7 with Peter (and a lengthy pitstop at a playground).  Left ankle still troublesome.  Not sure what it is yet.

8.2 at Highbanks the 0.2 with Peter (halfway down our street and back). Looking forward to one day running 2 miles with him (and later on 20).

3 mile tempo (5:36, 5:46, 5:37). The second mile was most hilly, so it was equal effort throughout. Felt pretty good, although I did overdress for the balmy 50 degree weather. I ended up running after the boys bedtime in the evening.
