That's right, I ignored advice of the doctor and my own better judgement and ran. I smiled the entire time too! Friday afternoon I was heading to the gym before yoga and decided you know what I should try it out. The first few steps on the treadmill sent shooting pain up my calf but once I got in my groove I was ok. I ran an easy four miles before I decided I should not push myself right out of the gate.
Time: 40 minutes Distance: 4 miles Avg. Pace: 10 min/miles
Not too shabby considering I haven't run in more than a month. Now, several days later I'm still hurting though. My ankle hurts every time I walk. I've made the executive decision to skip the MRI and just start intensive physical therapy. I didn't really like the orthopedic surgeon at all and I don't really feel the need to work with him or spend money on the MRI if he thinks it's just tendonitis.
Hopefully I can get into PT before I leave for Tampa on Saturday afternoon so we can get this show on the road. My month of yoga also ended this weekend....it did not go out with a bang but more on that later.
