The One In Which Crystal Cannot Catch A Break
Last week, when my knee started feeling better, I started running again...slowly, and in small bits. But I noticed that my ankle felt tight. I figured it just needed some stretching. Two days ago when I ran, it hurt a lot, but as is my habit that regularly gets me in trouble, I ignored the thing I didn't want to acknowledge.
Last night, even though I had stayed off of it all day, I noticed how swollen it was. Today, I tried to run anyway. Yeah, I know. Anyway, ten minutes (only two of them even running) and I decided enough was enough. I opted for the bike - that didn't seem to hurt as much.
I'll take Saturday and Sunday off and only do the bike next week. I promise. Because as stubborn as I am, I'm not so much for the pain.
But really...I make an honest effort to be healthier and it's one thing after another. I mean, I'm ONLY 20, er, 25, er...we won't discuss it. But still...I'm not THAT old. I shouldn't be falling apart just yet.
