I'm Listening

Okay, I was a tad excited a bit too soon about my running ability.  Things seemed great Saturday, Sunday and even Monday as I walked and ran my on the treadmill. I may have changed the walk to run ratio too soon.  My ankle/foot/leg was not happy today.  I even noticed it when I was swimming.  It ached all day.  Not a lot.  But enough for me to rethink my current plans and decide for now I could have no plans.  Tomorrow will be a day off even though my bag is packed and ready to go out the door with me in the morning.  Yes, it will be.  I repeat. Yes, tomorrow will be a day off.  There I've said it in public so now I need to do it.

No more talk of training.  We'll see which halves I get to do.  It's all in the future but right now I'll try to appreciate the days I can run and not pick it up too soon.

Being cautious is arise move. Take more time off to avoid a longer downtime. Treat yourself to some massages so it doesn't feel like punishment, or up the swimming. Maybe even try aqua jogging.

Good job listening to your body. Hopefully it rewards you by healing fast.

I hope your day off pays off and you're back on the streets in no time. Good to listen now rather than pay more later.

Glad you are taking it easy. Running will be there when your body is ready.

Even though it sucks big time it is still the fastest way back to full recovery. Thinking of you!

One day at a time. You'll get there.

You know the right thing to do. It'll be so worth it when you're recovered. Hang in there...
