Well I had the ankle injury last week and really took the time to decide how to handle the recovery. I think I did a pretty good job and deserve a self pat on the back. No running Thursday and Friday. Saturday we went to the park and The Fiance was trying some speed work for the first time so I jogged a bit here and there with her and the ankle felt great. Last night I had old man softball and had to run here and there, again no real issues. I feel pretty good about running tonight.
Overall I told myself that I already have more miles this month than I did last month so increasing miles is going well. The long term goal is to run a half marathon this year and a hurt ankle doesnt help me get to that goal. So I really had a good mindset coming out of this injury and I got out of it pretty quickly.
We have our race, The Pat Tillman Run, next month so my base runs will be right around the 4 mile range. This will have me well prepared for that race.
Have you had any injuries where you either took the correct road to recovery or the wrong road to recovery? What race are you currently training for?
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
