One mile

Hi! (short)

I want to celebrate that I finally ran 1.01mi non-stop and pain free. Yes… I’m so happy for this achivement. That injury took longer that I expected to recover but the wait worth it.

Patient is the key.

In another post I’m going to write about the stuff I did to recover.

I risk it (short)

Hi!

After 4 months in recovery. For a twisted ankle that left with 3 swollen ligaments and effusion in the area just for a bad landing playing volleyball. Today I finally ran without any pain. This took a lot of patient of me. I felt very frustrated that it took so long. This run felt amazing it was just 0.51mi… But without pain this is goals. Recovery is important. I’m not sure if I can still play volleyball again yet but I’m sure that for running this is just the beginning. Back at it. I know is going to take time but I so happy and grateful be back slow and short pace and distance but for sure is more that stay at home with a brace and a elevated leg almost all day during long days, weeks and months…

I’m Back July 2018 (update)

Hi!

It have been more than a minute since my last post here in my blog. I don’t have any excuse. I just had a lack of inspiration since I injured myself playing volleyball. My Ankle still bother me. I when recently back to the doctor and still the same swollen ligaments and effusion that’s a boomer. I can walk better now, but I can not be active like before the injury.

I lost my inspiration, I lost myself in this injury and I gain weight too. Something that I’m not proud of. Now that I feel a little bit better I might start taking walks (is the most I can do for now) also I might start doing low impact exercises so my ankle is not compromise. I have try to run twice since the injury the longest I ran was 0.51mi and my ankle remind me for almost a week that, was a bad idea.

I want to write good content but when your tool is damage is hard to write about something that is not happening. (Like play volleyball, Running, Walks, Goals).

So I’m going to try my best to find myself again so I can put that in words for my blog, my journal. That way I can start slow but for sure my personal inspiration again. This blog had help me a lot and I miss it.

So I’m back at it!

Bad Landing (Volleyball)

Hi!

(short)

On Monday I went to an open gym for a volleyball section with my all energy on high. I play 3 sets first then 2 more. In the final set of the game I was very involved and focus. It was the third pass to make the spike and there is me in the zone 4 to make the point wish it works but then this happen, I think the worst nightmare of any player an injury. I did a bad landing and twisted my ankle. I didn’t use the ankle braces. It was during the night so I waited until today the next day to visit the doctor. It hurts a lot and is very swelling but Thanks God is not fracture. I have swelling ligaments. Right Now is already 24hrs of this happening and is better but still hurts. I have put icepack, arnica balm and I also elevated the leg… I hope this get better soon. Now not running, not volleyball until fully recover I don’t want to risk anything.
