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.
