Haven't posted for a while because work stupid busy and I'm also feeling a bit fed up. So this post is probably a bit moany.. But you have been warned.
Week 8 run 1, I came home victorious from getting to the park and back and running 25mins with no real problems, and then about five mins later I was wondering why my ankle hurt...I hadn't rolled it or anything (I thought) but it felt bruised and was a bit puffy...
Took a few extra days rest, iced and so on, then ran again on Sunday... It wasn't exactly100% but It felt OK and I hoped it would be fine. And the run was fine (fab, in fact) but my ankle that evening and next day was, and has remained , painful, and I'm hobbling about.
So...am going to wait it out til fully healed this time. I don't know what I've done to it, but it's not happy! Ibulieve, ice and a bandage are not enough to stop it moaning... Oh dear... So frustratingly close to graduation, too.
I know others have had things flare up, and have gone on to graduate and continue to run, so am just trying to posses my soul in patience, as they say. But it's a darn nuisance!
On the other hand, and more positively, i do have new running shoes (bought on Saturday). Gait analysed and everything 😀 Will try and do a picture but that will need my gizmo to charge up first, and is a bit too late for me to do it this evening.. Hopefully they will prevent future injury...apparently they do seven leagues with each step, too....!
