Just wanted to check in really to remind myself that I am still a C25K-er. Having busted my ankle on the last run of W8, I have now had a fortnight off since my last run and it is still not right. I've been to the GP who said elevation, heat and ibuprofen, so am doing all of those when I get a chance (as a working mum of two boys, I spend a lot of time on my feet and rest is a bit of a pipe dream!).
Went out yesterday, got my gait analysed and bought the most fabulous (and fabulously expensive) pair of proper running shoes. The gait analysis shows that I am pronating slightly on my right foot (the side where the ankle is bad), and the man in the shop had a bit of a double take when he saw the knackered old trainers that I'd been running in up till now, so maybe that explains the injury.
I've had to accept that I won't be doing the Mothers' Day 5k, which is upsetting me more than it probably should. I know it's more important to let my ankle heal properly and concentrate on getting back the fitness that I'd started to achieve.
I miss being a runner though!!
