Hey just wanted to check back here, I have been busy lately so I haven't gotten around to posting in a while. When I did the exercise thing with my friends I went about a mile doing intervals of running for 60 sec and walking for 90 before I hurt my ankle again. I had sprained it back in March and I thought that it must be better by now, but the running must have aggravated it somehow. I then had to walk the mile back to his house, which I was surprised by how far I had gone in such a short time. I had tried to keep up with everybody else, and they were a lot better shape than I am. That was a mistake, as I had never really ran before. I still have an ankle brace from last spring, and I made an appointment to meet with a doctor on Tuesday the 20th. That is when I can get into Norris for free. Norris is our school's health center and if I go before the 20th it is $50, but if I go after it is free. I am hoping they can refer me to do physical therapy at our athletic center on campus. hopefully they can do my neck as well as my ankle. they are free, so I don't have to worry about if insurance will cover it or not.
I am still struggling with motivation, but have decided to take it one day at a time and do what I can for now. I will write more later, but for now I am exhausted from a long day. The dog barked at 8:30 in the morning and had to go out. I couldn't go back to sleep after that, stupid dog. I normally wake up at 10.
