Yesterday I hiked 8.5 miles. It's the longest distance I've done so far! it went pretty well. The only downside is that my right knee and left ankle are giving me a lot of trouble even with a brace on. The ankle is a new pain. I think I might have slightly twisted it or something. It didn't bother me that much during the hike it was afterwards when we were unloading our stuff out of the carpool car, I took a step forward and felt a sort of sliding movment inside the ankle and then intense pain and it's bothered me since. The knee pain I've been having for the last 3 or 4 hikes after a couple of miles. It goes away during the week and then comes back into the next hike. I dunno what to do about it.
