A domestic

After Killerton last week my ankle grumbled.

During the 15 miles on Sunday it complained.

Sunday night it moaned.

Monday morning it cried down the stairs.

On the club run and the hills round the town that night, it was shouting at me “you are taking the ****!”

Tuesday morning it did not talk to me and the silence was deafening.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday I tried to make amends and rested. Treated it to a bag of peas, some heel stretches on the stairs and biofreeze.

Today it seems we are on talking terms again. Hooray. Now when shall I next run?

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

  1. Hope Ankle is kinder and less grumpy. Sounds like a niggly sort of week.

  2. It’s good to move on after arguments, but sometimes important to work out what gave rise to it in the first place.
    I’d do a few small, enjoyable activities that you both know you enjoy, learn to bond again. Become strong together before you once again test your relationship.
