Haven’t Ran In 7 Days

So I previously told you guys how I injured my ankle.  It is still a little swollen and a little sore.  I was going to try a run, but since I have Dopey Challenge in a few weeks I would hate to make it worse.  I am prescribing myself some more rest.  I don’t want to do anymore damage.  Sometimes you have to listen to your body and that is what I am doing.

I was hoping to finish my marathon of Dopey Challenge in sub 5 hours, but now I think I am going to adjust my pace and timing based on the fact that I hurt my ankle.  I don’t have to finish fast, I just have to finish 🙂

I have my ankle brace, but I think I will be paying the KT Tape booth a visit at the expo (hopefully they have a booth).  My ankle brace is great for shorter runs, but anything over 10 miles it starts to rub to much and KT Tape will be a much better bet.

How are all you doing?  Everyone ready for WDW Marathon weekend?  Anyone fighting an injury like me?

    Oh no! I hope your ankle gets better! You’re smart not to push on it and to adjust your goal.

      Thank you! 🙂 I would rather be realistic with myself than seriously injure myself…even though it is sometimes a hard pill to swallow haha.

    I hope the rest helps your ankle recover quickly! I’ve been fighting on and off foot pain, so I’ve been resting more in preparation for my half next weekend.

      Thank you. Good luck on your half and I hope your foot pain doesn’t act up 🙂

    I am saying a prayer for you that your ankle heals. I know it’s hard to lay low, even with a injury but you are giving yourself the best medicine there is, rest. Get lots of sleep, that is when the body heals…
