On Mondays I used to recap my prior week of running, post motivational pictures and provide a few songs I was listening to during the week for my workouts. I would like to continue on the tradition, especially because I have hurt my ankle and am sidelined from running for a little bit, so of course I myself need motivation to workout in other ways.
I’ll catch you all up with my latest running adventures since I took most of the week off.

Ankle started having issues
8/23: 1 mile
Ankle hurt at the start, but wanted to run at least a mile to see if it would work itself out. Didn’t, so I walked 1.5 miles to get some form of exercise and try and get my head right mentally.
I don’t know how you all are, but when I can’t run, or something sidelines me from running, then I get pretty depressed and frustrated. Especially because I was finally getting my fitness back and running sub 8 minute pace and am training for two half marathons. But I’ll just keep positive thoughts and bike instead until I can run again.
