Imposed rest day frustration - But on a brighter note

Yesterday i was on my way to an appointment with work the pavements were quite slippery and i managed to turn my ankle not to bad to cause swelling but bad enought to make me thing running this morning was not on. I still got up got ready and took Flo to the park and walked my usual route. Lucky i think i will be able to run on it tomorrow. But the feeling of dissappointment was really bad. The plan is really hitting home with me.

One footnote to this is that a two weeks ago i got measured for a dinner suit, i need for an awards event. Yesterday i went back and I have gone down by 4 inches i cant believe it i had the tailor check and double check his measurement, but he did say he could see the difference in the time since i last had been there but this may have been to just boost his commision. Cant wait to see were this plan takes me.

Roll on running again tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about your ankle, how frustrating. Haven't had an injury setback but can imagine how that feels. Hope you can run tomorrow.

Fantastic about the inch loss, I haven't lost any weight yet, but the lower belly is smaller and do feel toned up a bit, especially the legs and torso.

On a different note, is Flo a greyhound? I have one, but she doesn't come on the longer runs with me anymore, she doesn't like them, no time for sniffs!!!
