I finally made the decision… surgery here I come! Early November, I will have surgery to repair a torn ligament in my ankle. It wasn’t an easy decision to make because I love to be active… and my ankle doesn’t hurt EVERY time I run… just MOST of the the times I run and EVERY time I run outdoors… Plus I have been on a really good streak with balancing my workouts with my nutrition and I am the healthiest I have been in a long time. I am afraid of loosing all that, but surgery is needed so I can recover and come back stronger next season.
So now what? I’ve recovered from inury before, but not when I have been this consistent with my workouts and in a good eating pattern. Does anyone have any good suggestions for still getting in some sort of calorie-burning workout as I recover? I will be non weight bearing for at least 2 weeks and in a cast for 4-6 weeks after that… so I don’t really know what to expect or what I’ll be able to do… but I am open to any and all suggestions!
