2 miles on the stair climber
I'm having a hard day today - maybe even a pity party! Over Thanksgiving, I decided I was going to run my first marathon. On things like that, once I commit - it is go time. I don't turn back. All my best efforts are put forth and very very rarely do I slack.
My left ankle has been bothering me for 2 weeks. I should have rested it. I thought I could run through the pain. After doing some internet research (and that is always SO accurate), I think I might have a slight stress fracture. This makes me mad cause gosh darn it - I'm ready to go. Mentally, I'm ready to work hard and hurt after a good workout.
I've been icing several times a day, Motrin, an ankle brace - but I think it needs rest. While waiting for the stair climber at the gym, I went on the eliptical - YUCK! What a waste of time. It just bums me out!
I'm ready to start racing fast. Last year was my "warm up" after my 4 year "having babies" break! I'm ready to loose my last few baby pounds (I'm 146 and want to be between 125-130) and be fast.
Okay - I'm done with my frustration - time to make the best of the situation!
