I want an easier journey!

Friday, November 06, 2009

My ankle hurts. I don't have access to a pool now. I guess I will do yoga today. I am coping but, I wish it were easier.

Have a great day all. May your journey be easy or if it is not may you have the strength to do it anyway.

    I'm sorry your ankle hurts. I know you have been using walking as your primary cardio. Biking or exercise cycling helps, but there are other choices also. Try wrapping it before walking and giving it support. There are several products that work as well as the regular ace bandage. I like the one that looks like an old high top tennis shoe. You put it on and lace it up then put on your regular shoes. It gives the ankle support and lets you move fairly normally but not straining the ankle.

    Ice helps. Taking shorter walks until it heals, etc. can help also. Depending on how injured it is, it can take months before it is back to normal, so you have to find ways to get past it. I had trouble with stairs for almost a year with my ankle last time I hurt it.

    Hope you feel better soon. Cut back your calories to make up for not walking to avoid gaining weight.

    Amazing what a difference a body part makes, huh? May you literally be back on your feet soon. Do what you can do and control what you can control. The rest will take care of themselves in time.
