So an update from the other day. I rested my feet up and the swelling around my ankle was gone by the next morning. My foot didn't hurt either. So I think what happened is I slept on it all twisted up in my sleep then ran on it whilst sore and was on my feet all day and that's how the swelling came about perhaps?
Yesterday I continued to rest and keep an eye on it and see how it is in the morning.
From the moment I woke up I wanted to run, but also felt like I didn't want to run today, I was tired and stressed out. I did it though. I ran for 25 minutes straight and then I did a 60 second sprint at the end.
I think running continously is a bit easier for me because I can get lost in the music and the running, but I won't pretend any of this is "easy" there were loads of times I just wanted to stop, from the start all the way to the end I battled with myself to see it through and not just give up just because I'm in a bad mood.
I don't know how I did the sprint. I heard Jo say "sprint" and I thought "oh eff off Jo" but before I knew it my legs were off. I couldn't believe it.
I can't tell you how much I actually needed this today. I didn't even realise until afterwards how much of a mood I was in.
Running gives me such a good feeling.
I can't fathom my life without this now. Its only been a month and a bit. Is that weird?
