very frustrating

very frustrating

Still sitting trying to rest the ankle injury and getting really frustrated. I am envious of ANYone I see running outside.

Keep thinking why me?

Keep wondering how long its going to take. Still limping when I walk after about 8 days now.

I am no good at this sitting around thought, the whole idea was to get off the couch........not return to it!

Oh hope its not going to go on for ever. Otherwise I will need to go back to week 1 of the podcasts I think.

  • So sorry, it must be awful and so frustrating. Some say they come back stronger after an injury. Have you tried any cross training to keep your fitness up?

  • Have you thought about doing some chair based strength and flexibility exercises? Might still be tricky to do some of them with a very dodgy ankle, but it would all contribute to fitness.

    I'm sure you won't need to go back to week one though!

  • Chin up, wont be long til you're back at it.

  • thanks all, just no good at sitting on my bum doing nothing.

  • My sister is going through the same thing - just ran her furthest distance (18k) and unfortunately fell :( She's been told 12 weeks rest. she did try a run after 4 weeks but was unable to walk for two days afterwards. Rest up and you'll be amazed how quickly you can get back to it in the end
