Just popping in to share that I have decided to stop being so stubborn. I am taking, if need be, a few weeks off from running. Don’t think I’m not struggling with this decision. On my 2 mile walk tonight, I was almost in tears from being so mad at my ankle. I am going to do whatever it takes to heal this ankle instead of continuously re-injuring it. I hope to run the Girls on the Run race on Dec. 3. By then, my ankle should be feeling better. It’ll work out perfectly as my comeback race, since there are no times recorded.
What is the longest you have had to rest from running? What did you do to cope?
I plan to ride my bike and do lots of R.I.C.E.
