Gals, Update from my side, which most of you know- On Tuesday , at around 3 pm, I tripped on the stairs at work and got diagnosed with avulsion fracture on my ankle. Nothing serious- its treated like a soft injury tissue.
The doctor has prescribed me a cam walker which is a big black walking boot- similar to this one-
So I think I will heal in anytime between 4 to 6 weeks (hopefully earlier).
It bummed me out that I can't run the CDC halfie and not sure about the Banco..but I might aim for the Indy half in October!!

I cannot drive with the boot!!!:( which I have to start thinking through how I can be mobile to meet you guys!:) Drop in home anytime!!

I need to be **extra** careful about my food. I would like to be on a 1200 calorie diet till I can get back to my regular physical activities. So keep me true to the 1200 cal diet girls!!

Also I asked the doctor if I can swim and he said that I can't do anything that puts any action on the ankle, please suggest me some physical activities I can do to keep active. I am thinking of hand weights, upper body machines, crunches- anything else?

*** Thanks for your calls and offering help! , You girls are awesome!! ***

Update from Momentum

Ladies....I have not quit running (not just yet).....although I was ready to last weekend after my very frustrating 9 mile run....I cried and was so disappointed..then with some encouragement from my hubby and OPOCCTGP I kept at it. I know I have been bad at posting...for some reason it is difficult for me. Hubby has been travelling to DC every week and comes home on weekends. My parents are coming to visit in two a lot going on

Anyway....hubby and I ran in Washington DC yesterday (july 19th)...8 miles. It was so hot....but it was great running in the National mall area and around all the museums and government offices. I was not paying too much attention to my pace..I just kept running (with some very brief walking breaks). I think I stayed at 12 min/mile.

In the past few "long" runs....I had noticed that water and Gatorade was not cutting it for me. I would start feeling faint after 4-5 miles. One friend suggested GU gels. I am not big on sports supplements and stuff but I decided to give it a try. So had one after mile 5 and I felt a noticeable difference.

Anyway....that's what's been happening with me.
