Monday: Rest. I don’t recall if I had a good excuse.
Tuesday: 5.7-mile run. It was 60 degrees, Kelly said she was going to head out for a runch, and I joined her. Tacked on a few extra miles to run to/from meeting her.
Wednesday: Nike workout – warm-up, 20 minutes of strength & mobility, 20 minutes of running intervals, cool down.
Afterward, I was in a mood and decided to work on choreography and learned that no, I cannot chair dance in heels. That is to say, I rolled my ankle. Whomp whomp emoji.
Thursday: I was signed up for a workout at Nike’s new House of Go and despite my ankle, I didn’t want to miss it. (OK, fine, there was a promise of free gear.) I ended up walking most of the treadmill intervals. But they are doing free treadmill workouts during March, you can sign up at nike.com/chicago.
Friday-Sunday: Decided to be smart and let my ankle heal! No workouts.
Miles: Roughly 10, including the walking
Total time: 2 hours, 40 minutes
Tuesday with Kelly (and some UIC students)
So, after being sidelined for almost a week due to back pain, I brought a new injury upon myself and it’s looking like close to another week of no workouts. My ankle only feels tender if I try to bend it a certain way, so I’m thinking I might be able to ease into non-running workouts … yes?
