Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well! I haven't had a chance to update my blog but I have had some unfortunate adventures that have kept me from exercising. A couple weeks ago I participated in a trail run. I was doing pretty well, and felt good!! A local Italian restaurant was going to provide us with a nice Italian meal upon finishing so I was trying to run for my pasta. Until, a rock jumped out at me and made me fall. That dumb rock made me fall and twist my ankle. I debated at first if I should continue but then thought logically that I should probably stop and walk back. So off I went, the medic checked it didn't think it was broken. I ate my pasta and drank my beer, I mean I didn't sprain my ankle for nothing, I figured at least I should eat my pasta! The next day I went to the medclinic and sure enough I had a grade 2 sprain. While I am thankful it was not broken, having a sprained ankle has been no walk in the park. I haven't been able to exercise, I am tired of limping and I am tired of the air cast that I have to use. He told me it should take from 4-6 weeks to heal, I am on week 2. Of course it didn't stop me from going to Las Vegas for Spring Break but it wasn't as fun had I been able to walk appropriately. So now I have a little bit of a predicament, I need to figure out a way to exercise without injuring my foot. Any ideas anyone??? I have thought about doing crunches, leg lifts, I guess I could do weights for my arms but I just don't feel like I am getting a quality work-out. Ugh, if anyone has any ideas of some exercise I can do that won't cause me to put pressure on my ankle please let me know!!!!
Unfortunately I had signed up for a couple of runs that I am not going to be able to do, one of them is a wine run so I am thinking I may just go for the after party :)
