HBBC and my ankle...............

Run to the Finish is hosting her annual Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge. If you are interested in getting on board, click here to read the rules. Be sure to let her know I sent you her way... you know, so I can get some extra points... tee hee.
Starts Nov 23rd and end Jan 8Th....
My Fit by Fall challenge ends Nov 23rd and so this will be perfect for me. I really don't care if I LOSE weight over the holidays, I just don't want to GAIN. So this is definitely the challenge for me.

My ankle is still having issues. It is right on top, where the ankle bends, but radiates down the ankle bone as well. Yesterday, I couldn't even run 2 blocks. It has definitely turned into a pain, where at first it felt more like something was tight and needed to pop. I hope it is just a small over usage injury and with some time off running, icing, ibuprofen and maybe some soaking time in Epsom salt, it will be better in a week or two at most. I want to run my next marathon in Feb and need the training to not fall to far behind.

i got pain in that same exact place after my marathon! but it was def from my sneakers. it never escalated tho and i don't think it was really damaged, prolly just a deep bruise. hmmm. keep icing hopefully it'll feel better soon.

Oh no! I guess it's good you didn't sign up for Rocket City... you wouldn't have been able to run it anyway. I hope it gets feeling better soon. Maybe you could have a good Sports Chiropractor take a look at it. I love ours.

I had the deep bruise thing Lacey was talking about a few weeks ago, but yours sounds a little different. Mine didn't go to the bone. I researched "extensor tendonitis" ---have you looked up that particular one to see if it matches?

I did the Holiday Challenge on my blog last year and may repeat it. From Dec. 1 to Jan. 1 try not to gain more than 1 lb. Of course, I'll be post marathon, not running much at all, so I'm probably setting MYSELF up for failure.

Found your blog, thanks. I will enjoy following your journey! I have twin boys and hope when they are older, they remain close like you and your sister! Hope the ankle gets better - that's a tough one!
Happy weekend!
