During all the snow that we had, I fell as I was walking. I didn't think much about it, because I really didn't go down that hard. This weekend, while we were down in Gettysburg, we did a lot of walking, and by Sat night, my ankle started to really bother me. It hurts when I put my shoe on and if I move it the wrong way. So my hubby told me to get it checked out on Monday. So Monday, I called the dr, made an appointment and went into see him. Of course he sent me for x-rays. Luckily there is no fracture, which is what he was afraid of, seeing that it took 4 days for the pain to start. So it is just a strain, but until it heals, it is going to bother me. I have not exercised since Sunday, Monday, I was pretty much on my feet all day, doing laundry and grocery shopping, and today, instead of doing housework, I sat with my foot propped up reading.
I am really bummed because today is the first day since the beginning of the year that I did not get up and get moving. I don't want to fall back into the rut I was in last year, where I went for days without exercising. But I know that I have to give my ankle a chance to heal, so I will take it easy for a couple of days. Hopefully by the weekend, it will be feeling better, and I will be able to get back at it.
