My ankle is healing well. It still looks a little puffy and hurts if I move it wrong, but there’s no pain for normal activities like walking. I’ve done my regular walk several times and feel almost ready to do the longer version with two hills.
I’m still using RICE, but only when it’s convenient. I’ve quit the Naproxen because I don’t like to take that too long.
I set my August goal for 1400 minutes of exercise, but I’m off to a slow start. It’s not all the injury, because I could be making up the time with stretches — and a turned ankle is a pretty good indication that I’m not doing enough stretching.
There’s an emotional element. I’m dealing with an inner 2-year-old. If I can’t do what I want, than I won’t do anything. So there. Pouty face.
But I have managed, at least, a short walk every day and I’m coming around to doing a bit more each day.
