Two weeks ago I graduated after completing two weeks of 30 minute runs, towards the end of the run I felt my ankle hurting a bit, not long after stopping I could hardly walk! Couldn't believe it! I have taken two weeks off, had physio last Friday and was told I could try running again. I went out yesterday and was really pleased that I could still manage 24 mins, I could have pushed on but didn't want to risk my ankle too much. It was only about two miles because I took it very slowly. My ankle is sore again today, but keeping up with the stretching and ice and back to the physio next week. I really don't want to lose my momentum and fitness so want to get back to regular running as soon as I can. It felt so good to get out again, I didn't realise how much I have missed it and how much I enjoy my 30 mins of focused time for me. Part of me isn't too bothered about this blip, I know it will get better and then I'll be back on track.
