Last week, I adjusted my rest break and was able to hit my 800s repeats pace. The following day I went for an easy run with Kathy and Art. I was ecstatic. This is it! I really thought that I would be able to do all my training runs for the week. Then disaster hit. I tripped, fell and ta-da! Sprained ankle with scraped knee on the side. I was still able to walk/run back to the gym.
Friday was the worst day ever. I woke up and my left foot felt and looked like
it was a size bigger than the right foot. I had half a tennis ball growing out of my ankle. Panic!
A visit to Dr Chu-Uy and her needles on Saturday helped to bring down the swelling.
I’m now twiddling my thumbs. Waiting for the swelling and tenderness to go away. Waiting for my scraped knee to heal. Waiting for the day when I can run again.
Maybe this weekend…
