I was really enjoying this morning's run having worked my way back to W9 by half term as planned. It was a great run, I had about 90 seconds left & was thinking I might even be quite close to reaching 5K as well as managing the 30mins... I thought I would even speed up a bit for the final minute.
The next thing I know is splat- I've slipped on the mud and am lying spread eagled on the cycle track. I grazed my arm and my leg, my ankle hurt A LOT & my left side was covered in mud. The only saving grace was I was wearing gloves so my hands were ok and I don't think anyone saw me! By the time I got home I was limping quite badly.
So what bothers me now is how long it will take for my ankle to get better. It's the same ankle that stopped me running back in October and while I quite enjoyed doing the earler weeks again after my extended break I really don't want to have to do that again. I was so motivated this time and was definitely finding the runs more enjoyable. I'm feeling very cross & frustrated (but slightly better now I've had a good moan about it on here). Here's hoping I can get back out in days rather than weeks.
