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!!
