The doctor said if I took it easy, I could start joging on my ankle starting in May, so today I did some very easy jogging.

I jogged 400m, walked 400m, jogged 400m and walked 400m for a total of 800m jogging and 800m walking.   Felt good.  

I will keep it at this distance for at least this week, and will work on increasing the jogging distances over time.

The track coach told me that the teams last track meet of the year will be at the end of October, and that I could run the 800m if I wanted.  He said I could run it at any speed I wanted and that I didn't have to worry about time.

It is good to have something to work toward, but I need to be careful not to push myself too hard too soon.

I think one of the hardest obstacles that I will have is mental.  Right now I am constantly afraid that I will do something to break my ankle again.

Today I went to the ITU Yokohama triathlon.

It was so exciting.  It was my first time to attend a triathlon race. 

It started out with the swim.  There were so many people watching the race and I was not able to get to a spot where I could watch the swim well, but I did watch it from a far distance.

Next was the bike portion.  I couldn't believe how fast they rode.  You could hear the whirling sound of the wheels as they passed by.  It gave me goose bumps watching them.

Finally was the running portion.  After the bicycle portion, all of the athletes looked so tired.  I couldn't imagine them being able to run fast in that condition.  Also the temperature was in the 80s.   But all of these athletes surprised me.  They have so much determination.  There was even one runner from France that had a crash in the bike portion, and had blood running down his face during the run, but still kept going.  The winner was from Spain and ran 10K in under 30 minutes.

It would be fun to try a triathlon someday, but first I would have to learn to swim fast and to ride a bicycle.

I want to add more distance.  I haven't had any problems with my ankle with the distance that I am running, but I also don't want to injure my ankle again, so I will try to be paitent and just continue adding distance a little at a time.

Increased my distance by quite a lot today and decreased the walk between jogs.  Maybe it was too big of an increase all at once, but since I have had no problems so far with my ankle I was sure I could handle it.  I had no pain so I will continue this week with this distance and see how it goes.

1000m jogging - 200m walk - 1000m jogging - 200m walk -1000m jogging -200m walk

total distance = 3600m
