Well, not a holiday as we all know it. Not one where you pack a suitcase & fly off to sunnier skies, to relax on a beach & catch up on rest, relaxation and family time.
Yes, I've had a 2 week holiday, but it was just a fortnights break from running. I decided as there was not much I could do, but be patient, I'd use the time positively, by resting and enjoying it.
However, I wanted to update those of you who had asked about my ankle: I twisted it and stretched the tendons, on March 7th, during a 20 mile training run. Then I fell over a water bottle, twisting the same ankle again, during a race, 2 weeks ago.
Since then, I've not run, but have seen my doctor, then the hospital, for an x-Ray & finally today, the physio. The results from the x-Ray showed "no evidence of fracture, but some soft tissue swelling noted over the medial malleolus" My physio massaged the scar tissue build up & made me do some exercises on a Wobble Cushion (I am going to order one now - brilliant!) I need to continue this exercise, to increase my balance awareness (heaven knows I need it!) Then that's me, done. Signed off and free to go for a gentle 2-3 mile pavement run. At last, I can start to contribute to a few more AS Steps! The sun is shining - I might go now?
