I just realised that it has been six weeks since I last ran (or posted), so I thought I’d better explain myself…
Ever since I started running last year, I’ve had a bit of a niggle in the ankle/achilles area. It’s nothing major and I usually just wear a support when it starts to annoy me, but on my last run it started to become pretty painful so I decided to take a proper break and let it sort itself out.
Six weeks on, it’s still not great. I can walk on it without any problems but there’s a definite weakness there – stiffness in the morning when I wake up and sometimes it’s tender to touch. Tempting as it is to just ignore it and go for a run, I know that’s not the answer. So, I’m resting. Taking a break. Trying to be patient and let it heal. Annoying, yes, but there you have it.
As a result of all of this, I’ve completely neglected my little blog, which there really isn’t any excuse for. So, today I decided to put things right – to start posting again and catch up with all of my favourite running bloggers. And, even though I’m not running, it feels great to be back!
How’s your training going? How was your summer? Are you still running and blogging and all that good stuff? Please leave a comment to let me know how you’re doing- I’ve missed you!
