rolled my ankle within the first two minutes of running today. just when my ankle was all healed and running was becoming my norm, everything just went downhill. 

hoping for a fast and efficient recovery. 

Went on retreat this weekend, and ate complete shit. I don’t feel all too bad about it, because god dammit I enjoyed that mac and cheese, soda, brownies,  burgers, and the mixed drinks. 

it’s time to get back on a healthy grind starting now. 

oh my gosh, guys. 

1. I’m actually writing a text post (let us treasure this moment)

2. I ran almost 20 minutes straight today. I just kept going. totally had a forrest gump moment and I loved it. 

3. oh, this is exciting because I always run in increments of 5 minutes and today, my endurance was unbelievable. 

4. ok I’m done.

My left knee is in really bad shape. Today was the worst condition it’s ever been in. My first problem was a broken ankle, and now my knee? I don’t even know what’s wrong with it. Hopefully I see my doctor soon because I cannot deal with this. 

Injuries really screw with your mood. Make sure to take care of your body, tumblr.  Not just through weight loss, but injury prevention.

Today’s Exercise

-30 minute walk/run

-30 Day Shred! 

Tried the 30 day shred for the first time today and it essentially kicked my ass, but I shared a great love/hate relationship with it. Probably won’t be able to do it until a couple of days because of work, but I can’t wait to do it again. 

Tomorrow I start my 4th week of the running program my orthopaedic assigned me! 

1st week-walk 30 minutes

2nd week-walk 30 minutes

3rd week-10% run (3 minutes WOOO..not), 27 minutes walk

4th week-30% run (9 minutes WOOOOOOO..eh), 21 minutes walk

…with each passing week, I increase my run time by 20%. I was glad to say the least that I got to run some of the time this past week. 

Here’s to hoping my ankle’s up for the challenges of this upcoming week!

It’s been about 3 days since my ankle’s started hurting, and I’m scared. This shouldn’t be happening. I went two weeks without pain while running, and now it just won’t go away. 

I was so happy with my improvement. I looked forward to my runs everyday. 

And the worst part is that I can’t do anything to make the pain go away. 

Sad post over.

Fact:

dempseyliveswell:

Right now I can’t workout.  Not just running…lifting, biking, swimming, anything.

So if you’re not injured right now, (or even if you are injured but can x train), take a moment to be thankful.

Exactly how I felt when I broke my ankle. Some people don’t have the luxury of not exercising by choice. 

Day 2 of Couch to 5k..

And all I gotta say is that..

I love to feel the burn.
