I miss running. I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could achieve 2021 miles this year – and I’ve already been a bit behind at the beginning of April – but then the thing I dreaded happened.
I went on a run not just to focus on my challenge goal and regular exercise routine but I had just a difficult moments just the day before and for the best release and processing happens during a run.
What I didn’t count on is how have that event actually impacted me and so instead of focusing on my run and pay attention to the trail my head was so consumed by all of my feelings that I tripped and boom sprained my ankle.
Initially I thought that I may have broken it and that could have been even more problematic due to a previous double break on that particular ankle when I was a teen.
It’s been about a week now and I am annoyed I can’t run yet – I miss running. It’s the an outlet I look forward to anytime I get to do it. And while walking isn’t the end of the world and still helps me get miles and exercise in – it’s just not the same.
Insert big ol’ sigh.
I know that I’ll be able to get back to it in a couple of weeks but patience has never been a thing I was fond of when I wanted to do something.
I suppose I will work on an afghan order while I wait for my ankle to heal proper and look into alternative ways to work out that aren’t going to cause more damage and so I won’t just wither away 😂
This afghan is going to be a full size blanket with granny squares using these three colors.
Well these squares aren’t going to crochet themselves!
