Ankle injury

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Last month I sprained my ankle rather badly.
Disregard how badly I need a pedi. I had been struggling with some shooting pains recently so After a month I went to the doctor now I get to wear an air cast and have to take it easy...a bit frustrating, not certain if I will be able to do the half marathon on the 19th. I'm frustrated it is taking so long to heal. I know it needs time. I guess the positive to it, it makes me focus on the disciplines I can do, like swimming and biking and strength training. I thought my running would be coming along at this point while I am faster, I can't go farther at this point. I feel edgy about this but I am managing, I will come back better from this injury I will be stronger at my other disciplines and stronger in general from the strenght training.

    Being patient now with the healing process with reap the rewards further down the road, however frustrating it may be with regard to your marathon.

It does look painful though.

Be kind to yourself and take it easy for a while.

    I probably should add that I waited on going to the doctor because it actually seemed to get better on it's own, it only started acting up again a week ago emoticon
