I had posted on facebook earlier that I had tweaked my ankle doing a dance aerobics thing, thank you Billy Blanks jr. I felt it as soon as I did and tried to stretch it but that did not make it feel better. The next day I rested it in terms of exercise. Today I was totally ready to wake up and get on the road for a nice long walk, even if I could not run. The ankle felt worse, right in the back in the Achilles tendon. I went to see my mom, who is not a doctor but plays one on tv. :) After a lot of massage and stretching it felt a lot better, but her orders were to rest it for several days. I kind of already knew I should, but I really did not want to believe it. I have such a hard time getting into an exercise routine that I hate to have to break it. I guess maybe it is good to have the first week back to work off to get back into that routine. Part of what makes me so upset is that I was so careful about not doing too much running too fast or too soon. It was the aerobics on my off day that did me in!
I just really do not want to lose my momentum and motivation. Help me friends!! I am starting to feel a little discouraged here. Thanks!!!!
