Last night, despite still being quite stiff, I decided to go for my walk to try and work out the stiffness from my fall. It didn't take long to start feeling better so I decided to give running a go. My previous best - 3 week ago - was 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Can I just say...
Okay, so the last 2 minutes were more of a shuffle, but I kept it up and kept going. About 2 minutes in and the oval started to fill with young footballers. Not lovely sexy young 20-something footballers, mid-teen footballers. I was instantly embarrassed and wanted to stop then I thought - WhoGAF!!!!!!!!!! So I kept going.
By the time I finished the 5 minutes there were footballs flying everywhere and it was time to leave the oval. I started walking on the footpath. I wasn't planning on trying another run but I felt okay after a little while so wanted to go again. But I was on the footpath and there were cars and people everywhere, and once again I was instantly embarrassed. But - WhoGAF!!!!!! Off I went. Only another 2 minutes as I was feeling Monday nights fall. Time to walk it out.
I tried my newfangled super dooper new ankle braces. Used them for the run, rode home in them then left them on for a couple for hours after. And today - NO FOOT PAIN!!!!!! YAY! They work! I am very pleased that I didn't waste the $50 they cost. :o)
This morning I went to the pool to try and work out the last of the stiffness. I didn't swim swim, I did some kickboard, some breaststroke, some walking and some running on the spot in the deep end (the deep end is only 120cm). Now I am sitting at work eating my oats with rice milk. YUM!
