Hey everyone, do you remember me? I am the girl who can’t walk down stairs without hurting my ankle. Cause walking down stairs is freaking dangerous.
I did run 5 km in the beginning of June. My knee felt good and I couldn’t wait to start back running. Then I stumbled while walking down stairs with my heavy suitcase at the central station in Hamburg. Two hours later, my ankle was swollen and I couldn’t walk.
I was pretty confident that I could run again a few days later. Turns out, a sprained ankle needs much longer to heal- so no more running for me.
So, I am sorry for not posting and not reading your blogs- I just didn’t feel like it. I felt dumb being injured all the time, and I didn’t feel like reading happy running post.
So now, after two month of (almost) no running, I am extremely scared to run again. I hope I did not lose too much of my endurance.
I do have a few things I want to work on while starting running again:
- be smart about running, build mileage slowly.
- hydrate! The past weeks, I haven’t drunk enough water, even though I know it’s important.
- do the exercises my physical therapist gave me constantly, three times a week.
There has been some good news, too:
I can’t believe how fast these past three years went by. I am scared and excited for the future all at the same time.
Stay tuned! I am going to update my post more than two times in two month in the future. That’s a promise!
