Running injuries and new routines

This week I have done ALMOST everything on my to-do list. Except Friday morning I couldn't run. My left ankle swollen and hurting. I have been stretching this week and I'm so upset about missing my run. Ice ice ice. This is the same ankle that hurt in June. I went to a neuromuscular training workshop and while the instructor was stretching me, my ankle popped and that night it swelled up and I could barely walk the next day. I've been fine since then. Until...two days ago. And I though I was invincible. There goes my dream of completing the NYC marathon in two years.

I've started taking spinning again and I took two strength training classes this week. Over the summer I did lots of spinning and no running. Lately I've been running and doing no spinning. This is the first week I've combined spinning and running.

Starting on Sunday, my diet will be in major overhaul. My first change is no eating after 7pm NO MATTER WHAT.

My training is going well, but I need to work on the food aspects in order to reap all the rewards. I'm tired of being a slow fat triathletewannabe.

On a fun note, today is my day with my biking buddies- prancing around the city on our mountain bikes!! good timez!
