First Run

Monday, June 17, 2013

I tried running - really running for more than a minute - for the first time since breaking my ankle in December.

It went... okay. I did run-walk intervals for a mile. Of that mile, I probably ran half of it. Then I walked for another mile. My ankle was very sore and complainy while running, but when I walked it was fine. I still felt lopsided, in spite of the strengthening exercises I've been doing.

I'm trying not to feel disappointed. I have to start somewhere. I'm not going to get better at running again unless I actually, you know, RUN. But it's still tough to accept how far I have to go to get back to where I was pre-broken-ankle, even taking into account how far I've already come.

Trying to dwell on the positive....

    I broke my ankle in 3 places in March of 2010 - by December 2010 I ran (okay....jogged/walked) my first 5k - one thing that really really helped me was icing A LOT of icing and taking days off when I needed them - don't push too hard - it's a long recovery but you'll get there :) emoticon emoticon
