Sprain and a little bit of rain!

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. :)
