Was so looking forward to my run!

Really frustrated that I have not been able to run today, my ankle is playing up and keeps giving way, thought it would be my knees that failed me but it seems to be the ankles that are weak.

Was so tempted to give it a go but decided to rest an extra couple of days - will invest in an ankle support I think the local running shop recommended tape, but not keen as I have to wear skirts for work and it's not attractive at least I can remove the support.

Slight delay but I will persevere and get there 😢

  • Hi Radleychick, you are doing the right thing resting your ankles the extra days will help, I too have a lot of problems with my ankles and have to wear ankle support which helps a lot and I too take extra days off to rest it.

    Yes definitely invest in ankle supports it'll keep your ankle from having any more damage. I know how you feel I'm not feeling great at the moment and having to take more extra days before I can challenge W6R3.

    You will definitely make it you've made it this far you should be proud of yourself.

    Take care xx

  • Thanks Josepha, i know it's the right thing as I don't want to ruin things but so annoying. Well done so far and good luck with the next run. I am going to try do W7R2 on Thursday, will be taking a trip to the running shop this weekend. Xx

  • WOW! W7R2 well done you. Keeping fingers crossed your ankles is better very soon but please do rest and rest. I'm running on Thursday also I shall be thinking of you.


  • Poor you! Hope that ankle is better soon.

  • Hope your ankles are better soon. I think Josepha gives good advice to have extra rest.
