After dorking up my left ankle Saturday I wanted to check it out and see if running is an option yet. I figured the best way to test it was with a low impact exercise that did not flex the ankle too much so opted for the elliptical trainer.
It felt pretty good!
One thing that did NOT feel good was my left calf. I think that since I was not able to stretch that leg after spraining my ankle and since I sat around all day Sunday letting it continue to get tight it's no wonder.
Anyway, progress! I hope this injury does not set me back too much.
I jumped on the scale for the first time in many weeks and had a fright. And here I thought I was doing pretty well during the holidays. Not.
