Fried Friday Ramblings

Excuse's Friday and I'm sitting here wanting to be ANYWHERE other than at work (yes, I am allowed to do this in my downtime between customers!)!   Anyway, with a Friday Fried mind, I will probably ramble!

The other day I was putting on my shoe.  It was a slip on shoe....I wiggled my foot to get it seated properly in the shoe and OUCH....the ankle screamed at me.   I took it easy and moved on.  Yesterday when I was getting out of my car I pushed and twisted to get out and screamed at me again.   So when it came time to run this morning.....I passed it up.   I hate to do it, but I am looking for health and running on a foot that is NOT up to par is NOT the way to do it!

 The Hagerstown 100 Miler was a huge consideration for me when I was contemplating to run or not this morning.  I don't want to get behind the 8 ball in terms of my mileage.   But that said, I actually was above my mileage for last week, so if I can get in a mile or two of walking this weekend I should be OK.    

What was my mileage for week one?   A few hours of hiking/walking on the C&O canal one day helped boost my numbers.  I completed 11.44 miles last week.   Not too shabby.   And knowing that I did that last week...I can mostly  rest my ankle this upcoming week.  In fact, I only need to complete 2.56 miles to stay caught up with my needed miles.  PIECE OF CAKE!  

My weight had dropped a bit this morning.   I think some of my weight issues at my official weigh in on Wednesday was due to water retention.  Way TMI, but your gonna get it anyway......I peed like a race horse yesterday.   Like literally every 30-40 minutes.  ha ha ha  That is a good sign...means I'm not retaining as much water anymore!

And a final picture of how I operate with my kitties!!!!

I'm not sure how long it takes an ankle sprain to heal, so this may be premature but perhaps you should see a doctor. It seems like it has been long enough for it to heal. Are you wrapping it? I think that would help.

Our bodies are funny. I've had days like you describe and think I should just move my desk in to the bathroom!

Oh, I love that meme with the cat!!! I'm like that, too.

I read that if you drink a lot of water regularly, eventually you'll stop needing to go as often but go more at a time. I don't know if that's true or not!

I go to the loo so often since restarting Weight Watchers that I told my hubby that I am going to set up a bed in there. The one positive is that all that walking to the loo racks up the steps on the pedometer!

Getting up to pee is my main form of movement at work.

I've been drinking so much water, I spend more time in the bathroom than any other room. I've heard the same thing that Jean said...Your body gets used to the water and you don't have to go as much later on. Hoping that is true!! Good job on the mileage, but take it easy on that ankle!!

Hope your ankle is feeling better. It is such a bummer when your body doesn't cooperate with what you mind is ready to do.
