I have officially added running to my regimen(!!!) and ankle is feeling fine. It is a little achy today, but it is also freezing outside, so I'm not sure if it was the running or the cold weather or a combo of both...in any case, I won't run today (Sunday) or on Monday and I'll take it back to the elliptical for the next couple days. I'm far from being discouraged, I'm only at 10 weeks post break, and I know I am way ahead of the running schedule, so these "aches" are to be expected.
I did less pool time this week, and not on purpose. Tis the season for holiday happy hours and less time to work out. I do want to keep at least 2 days in the pool a week; I'm hoping to add, next week, more pool days back into my routine....but I have a holiday party this Monday and the CAR happy hour on Thursday, so this maybe difficult. :)
Other note: I need to start to clean up my diet, being injured/holiday season, I have let it lax....5 lbs later, yikes, I need to cease this pattern, and get back into shape! ( except for Christmas day>I'll eat whatever)
