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....
