I am linking up with my awesome running gal pals Holly and Tricia
Join in the fun 💙 Tara @ Run and Live Happy is hosting this week!
Last week I jinxed myself by writing I usually bounce back last week. 🙊 🙉🙈
It was a non-running kind of week. My ankle started feeling really funky after I ran Tuesday morning. I felt twinges of pain when I was walking up and down the steps at work, then it felt weak a few times, it ached...and I got nervous, like I always do that something was fractured. Since I've had a stress fracture I always extra paranoid.
I looked at an ankle diagram and thought, well dang, that is complicated. It hurt right under the knot on the ankle so it is likely ligament or tendon, but who knows...I couldn't get to the foot and ankle specialist, it was the last week of school -too busy! Ice, compression, and no running was my routine.

I think I must have tweaked it when I fell last week. I tore up my left knee, however I landed on my right hand and cut it. My right wrist was sore, it took all week before I could grip anything w/o pain. I have no recollection of how I tore up both sides of me, it happened too fast, so I can not be certain I twisted something, but it seems likely.
Anyhoo...I tested my ankle Saturday and it felt fine while running and I had much less discomfort later in the day, so I think whatever was irritated is on the mend, but it really screwed up my last week of training. Next half marathon is June 24th. Yikes!!!
Tuesday- 5 mile run
Wednesday- 30 min. arc machine/50 min. upper body work
Thursday- lazy again
Friday- 1 hour arc machine/40 min. core, legs, stretching
Saturday- 4 mile run/1.6 mile walk
Sunday- 1 hour arc machine/20 minutes arms
9 miles run and I planned to do 28...I guess you can't win 'em all! I am trying not to worry, but I am!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Hoping the time on the arc machine will help.
Do you think it will?!
On a completely different note, Tweek my 15 year old cat was extremely ill and lethargic for days, not eating, and lost a lot of weight, but he rallied a few days ago and took a turn for the better. My toothless wonder started eating baby food (chicken and broth- no onion or garlic for cats) and now has progressed to soft Rachel Ray food. He is back to being chatty and it brings joy to my heart.
How was your week?
Thanks for stopping by!!
