Sprained Ankle

So my ankle was sprained for two or three weeks. It didn't hurt so much that I couldn't walk on it, but any more pressure than that and it would feel painful. It feels better now, but I haven't been anxious to test it in the park.

I always end up hurting myself when I run regularly. I must be doing something wrong. Or maybe running is just too hard on my body.

It probably wasn't the greatest idea to train for a marathon by reading a book. It was a good, thorough book, but I did have unanswered questions from time to time. If the authors had been standing in front of me, giving me tips, training with me, I probably wouldn't have hurt my ankle.

I think I'll try to join a running club or get private instruction. However, no marathon in October. Not only did I miss precious training time because of my injury, but I'll be missing more in September when I donate stem cells to a woman dying of leukemia. I won't be able to run for a week or more.

So I've kind of destroyed the theme of this journal, haven't I? I've always been interested in dreams, so I'll likely turn it into a dream journal. Or maybe I should write about the whole stem cell donation procedure.

We'll see...

Aw, I'm sorry about your ankle and about not getting to run the marathon. Suckiness.

Are you going to stop the Randomlife journal and just do this one? Or vice versa? Or will Randomlife be more for just odd thoughts here and there and you'll keep an actual journal in here about your daily life?

It's a cliffhanger!

No, randomlife.com is still my main endeavour. I'll just use livejournal as a separate project. But it won't ever be a regular daily diary kind of thing like most people do here.

I'm sure I'll run a marathon some day -- I just have to find the right way to go about it.
