Exhibit A: Swollen Ankle

That my friends, is not a pretty sight. After being on my feet a lot yesterday at work, my ankle swelled up considerably when I got home that evening.

I have not run since my pathetic attempt on Tuesday. I don't plan to run tonight either based on the above photo. I don't really have any pain per se, it just doesn't necessarily feel "good" either.

So tonight my form of exercise is going to come from a bike ride. I am going to dust off my old bike and hit the bike trail. They just recently paved all the trails near my house and it would be nice to make use of them before we move up the hill where there are no bike trails to ride.

I am seeing Dr. Lau on Wednesday of next week which is a good thing but I really wish I could have seen him sooner. I am supposed to help a friend out and run the NIKE Marathon (yes, the full) on October 17, 2010 in San Francisco. Have I been training to run a marathon? Nooooooooooo but that doesn't mean I can't go out there and give it my best shot without blowing up on the course. I have run the half and I know how tough of a course that can be and I remember last year thinking "thank goodness I am not running the full" as I was cruising into the finish line for the half marathon. Still, this would be my first marathon that isn't the California International Marathon (CIM) which I have run countless time and um, have not officially signed up for this year. I am totally slacking in the marathon training department . . . tsk tsk Trailmomma.

My mind is consumed lately with moving, figuring out when to pack and of course purging the house and closets of all that crap we no longer really need so I don't have to lug it to the new house. Oh yeah, and also this girl . . . who is sans diaper day two today! Woot woot! Now if she'd only sleep well!!


  1. ummm that does not look to good. I hope all works out with Dr. Lau. If you can't run it then we can hang out and cheer on the girls. Get some sleep, rest and ice.

  2. bummer on the ankle but seriously your ankles must be tiny when not swollen. I thought you were showing off new shoes from my dashboard page. :)

  3. Yikes...I hope the swelling goes down quickly and that it's nothing serious. Take it easy, even on the take care.

  4. That's quite an ankle! I hope you get it fixed for the marathon.

    I'm jealous that you are diaper free two days running. I think it will be awhile before I get relief from diaper duty.

  5. ouch, not nice, maybe better footwear for the office?


  6. I thought she looked thinner!! (no diaper - LOL)

    Which foot did you get the bunion removed from and why didn't you get the second one done? Just curious.

  7. Yes the ankle isn't pretty, but what is that funky lump? It looks like your foot has the mumps- or at least a mump.
    Good luck on the potty training. That must be pretty exciting for everyone.
