Yes, peeps. It's been quite a while since I have written a decent post before the big move. I need to get my butt off the couch and write.
Well, I am dealing with another ankle sprains. I am living up my name as being the Queen of Ankle Sprains. The nasty fall I had during my long run in Minnesota has brought a bad side effect. The gash has healed, but the swelling in my left foot and ankle did not go away. I had a lot of pain when I attempted to run on the treadmill....after I finished. I finally went back to the doctor and had it taken a look at. It did not take long for my doctor to ask for an x-ray.
No fracture...THANK GOD! I am going through another familar road. I have done it before. I can still do cross-training on the recumbent bike to maintain endurance. NO running for TWO WEEKS. I have my 20 miler at the end of the two weeks. I do not know if I will be able to do it. I hope to be able to it. Only time will tell.
To be completely honest, I am scared. I want to complete this marathon. I have told my doctor this. Thank GOD that he's a runner and completely understands. I have to stick with the plan and wait to see what happens.
I need to be motivated!
