R-I-C-E is Nice

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Well, after a week and 1/2 of "rice-ing" my ankles (rest, ice, compression, and elevation), I'm almost ready to hit the pavement again. After the 3 mile walk/run last Monday, my Charlie Chaplin gait seemed here to stay, accompanied by severe pain and swelling. What I thought were just normal aches and pains turned out to be real injuries. I felt like I had taken 1 step forward in my fitness goals, and 3 steps backward. That old Satan has once again (or is it "still") attempted to thwart my desire to improve my body, God's temple. And once again I remind him, greater is He that is in me, than you. Satan's mastery of distraction is unreal, isn't it?

So-o-o-o, I'm back on the wagon as of this coming Monday. I plan to by stylin' in my ACE ankle wraps. I don't know what my stamina will be like, but I'm not out to break any records. (Did you hear that collective sigh of relief from my competitors? HAHAHAHA!!!!) Truly, my only competition prior to and up to this point is my former lump of a self.

I hope all of you are injury-free and doing well. Together we can conquer the world - or at least the world of inactivity.

Have a great weekend~

    I feel your pain , or, is that my own? I ask myself why I didn't try a few years ago to get healthier and maybe I wouldn't have this bad foot now. Hoping you are much better and can get back to the marathon practice now.

    Oh I feel your pain but Thank God you are caring for and resting yourself! I have to watch overdoing it myself - there is always a spot to be tripped up but as you say, greater is He that is in me, that luckily I don't have to figure it all out.

    Rest up and enjoy the weekend!
