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.

    There's a reason why they say you need to walk before you can run. You probably did too much too quickly. You need to build up to it. Hopefully it's nothing serious and they can help you out, but it's important to be careful until they look at it. Can you wrap it or put a brace on it for a few days?
