No running

22 Jan

Yep, you read that right….no running…until next at least Wednesday. *sigh*

Let me explain: After finishing last Monday’s speed work, a tendon in my left ankle became really sore. I have had soreness in my achilles over the last few months, but this was not the same. I took Tuesday off, thinking that it would go away and it did. During Wednesday’s five miler it became evident that it hadn’t.

Reluctantly I took Thursday and Friday off from running, hoping that it would get better. Nope, come Friday evening, the pain had become less frequent, but my ankle was still tight every time I rested it for a while. Urgh!

Now it’s Saturday evening and it’s gotten better, but I can still feel it and occasionally it still gets tight and there is pain. So…with that said, I will restrict my training to the stationary bike and elliptical rider until Wednesday. I REALLY want to this to go away!,…but *sigh* I have gotten wiser over the years and hopefully this short term restriction means I won’t be out for the long term.

    Oh man, I feel your frustration. I’ve been having a pathetic week, mileage-wise, because of my knees. I think I tried to increase the amount I run too soon. Rest is a necessary evil, especially if you’ve injured yourself. Hope you feel back to normal soon!

    I will have to check those ear phones out… Thanks for the information…

    I see a lot of those older iPod’s at the gym still kicking around… They seem quite indestructible…

    I ended up converting back to a pair of JVC headphones I had a long time ago that worked until they too died from running.. I couldn’t find the Yurbuds anywhere… Maybe Canada doesn’t sell them haah
