Ouch that hurt

Helllllllllo Friday it is so good to see you! First I want to say a big thank you to all of my followers!  I can't believe that I have 97 followers!  You all are AMAZING! You give me great advice and encouragement when I need it the most! Thank you!
Last night I got on the treadmill late, but I needed to knock out my 5 miles that my planned called for. The goal was 5 miles with 3 miles @ 12:35. What I accomplished was 5 miles in 12:35, I felt great. In fact at 5 miles I slowed down to a walk and then said heck I should do another half or a mile and see how I feel.  I increased the speed on the treadmill and not 10 seconds later I rolled my ankle! @#$!*  @#$&(N @#$@#$(*

My right ankle has always been a pain point for me. It bugged me all through high school to the point where I had to tape it and wear an air cast when I played basketball. It started bothering me again in 2008 and I was diagnosed with Achilles tendinitis in the same foot.  During my 10 mile run when training for my first half I rolled it and it hasn't been the same since.

My ice packs are at my Dad's house, so I only had this dinky ice pack that I use for my daughter. Once that was warm, I switched to a bag of frozen fruit. The inside of  my ankle throbbed all night and this morning it hurts to walk on but is manageable. Looks like I am going to have a forced rest for the next couple of days I am glad this came early in my half training so that I have time to recover. For today I will rest and then reevaluate each day.

Best of luck to everyone who is out running this weekend. I know several of you are going to be out there smashing it at YoGoGirl!  Have an AMAZING weekend. 

Don't forget that it is Friday Blog Hop
