I signed up for an awesome 5K that is happening basically in my backyard on Nov. 2. I just started training for it at the end of last week, and yesterday morning I sprained my ankle. Like really, really bad. The doctor at urgent care today said it will be about 2 months until I can run again. Ugh!!! So frustrated.
I was all fired up about getting in shape and getting into a good fitness routine, and now boom! I can barely walk. Of course I'm glad that I didn't break my ankle, or that I didn't completely separate the ligaments in my ankle, but I'm really bummed about the race.
Anyway, I guess now I need suggestions for how to stay in shape without my legs (at least until I can start walking). I don't have access to a rowing machine. Right now all I can think of is upper body strength training, which is OK but not a full cardio workout in itself. Help! Please. :)
