So my low mileage runs continue to fall down on me. The past week's mornings have been cold, cold enough not to make me get up in bed. I hear my alarm but I'm just too sleepy to get up.
Another is the rain. I don't like to run in the rain as I don't want to get sick. Although its just a hoax and running in the rain will not really make me sick. But I don't want to slip again and end up with a bubu again. My route isn't that runner-friendly.
Just last Saturday, was supposed to run 10k to make up for the lousy 10k-weekday total run, I twisted my ankle. Its really not that bad but still made me limp so I ended it early.
This morning was supposed to be a quick 6k. But ankle still hurts, so I didn't run. Reading about it though it needs R.I.C.E (rest, ice, compression and elevation) - too bad I only got to read about it today, so its too late to be immediately applied.
It says that if I can stand on the leg with a few pain-free toe raises then I can run again. Too bad its not the case. Its really not very painful but I don't want to add to injury (again, listening to my body). A more serious condition such as Tendinitis and Stress Fractures could also be read from the runnersworld article. I don't want that.
When it rains, it pours - or so my running backlog continues to press on me. How I wish I could be more like the boring runner and do mileage as if its my job (although I would love a running job that would pay my bills and have enough to be able to send my daughter to college in the future).
Its a good thing there's Subway Surfer to keep me running. I just completed a daily challenge today, and I just need 9 more magnets to give me a level-up. If I dont' get it today I'll just buy my way through. :)
