Hello - quick update


I thought I would give a quick update since my last post was re the Big Sur marathon.

I am generally very bad at staying updated and even worse when I have not been running much.  My ankle has been sore every since Big Sur.  I take some time off and then try to run again . . . sore.  Take more time off . . . run again . . . sore . . . sore . . . sore.

Injuries are horrible.  Guess that's what I get for running a marathon on a sore/sprained/injured ankle.

What's next - hopefully get healthy.  My ankle is slowing getting better, but the SF marathon is coming quick.  Can I get ready for it?  I don't know because I'm not sure how my ankle will hold up on the long runs.

In the meantime - I bought P90X and have been doing that for exercise.  Has anyone done it?  Right now, I'm following the program, but as I add more runs into my routine it will be very hard (if not impossible) to stay on the program.

Hope all is well.  Happy running . . .

I hope the ankle gets better soon enough for your marathon. I'm following the "Body fo Life" program but only do the upper body and core exercise from the program as I run 6 days a week.

Hope it heals quickly!

If you ankle is continually sore, I hope it's just a ankle sprain and not a stress fracture. Because if you feel sharper ish pain in one area after running, you may have a stress fracture. If it doesn't get better, you might want to get it checked out by a sports doc. Good luck!
