My ankle has been bothering me and I've learned about the importance of recovery. If we continue to "push through" pain, our bodies cannot heal and we set ourselves further and further back. Now, I'm not using my pedometer to measure how far I can go, but rather how little additional stress I've put on my sore ankle. My step count isn't 10,000, but instead is showing me how low can I go. My ankle is getting better with this change to my goals, and that is what is important!
