BEING A BIG GIRL

I normally run on Thursday evenings but tonight I have to work. My intention was to get up early and try and squeeze in something on the elliptical or maybe run the dark streets of my hood with a headlamp but that didn't happen.

I saw Dr. Lau yesterday and he was awesome as usual. I am allowed to run and there is nothing structurally wrong with my ankle but I do have quite a bit of fluid build up down there that we need to get rid of. He gave me some self massaging exercises to do at home to help alleviate the swelling. I was also told to run wearing my compression socks. Ick, he's been telling me that for years but I have always refused and opted to wear them before and after races . . . looks like I might take his advice because I need to get this ankle healed.

So I figured one more day of resting the ankle is not all that bad of an idea yet it still seems weird to me that I am not going out to meet Pigeon after work today. Looks like I might have to summons some inner mojo to get me to start waking up super early for workouts. If we move, or shall I say when we move, that will be my only option most likely during the week. Otherwise I will be running the dark streets of El Dorado Hills with a headlamp super late in the evening.

But, like the Peanut always says, "I have to be a big girl" and do what I have to do to get 'er done.
