    @skippygirlsmom That ankle looks painful! So swollen! I'm so sorry to hear that you won't be running for a year. You seem to have a great attitude; already looking for ways to shift your focus. I think walking miles should could double when done as post-op recovery!

    1/1 – 6 miles
    1/2 – 3 miles
    1/3 – done


    9 (6.02) of 135 miles


    Ha ha @Tramboman I posted a picture of my foot in the spoiler, I’ll provide @Avidkeo xrays when I get them, I'll save you the pictures of all my cuts and bruises ha ha
    Thanks everyone, so many names to mention, you all are the best
    I agree 100% better to wait and have a full recovery than to keep fighting it. I expected a few months like 4 or 5 but not that long. My friend has something similar (non running related) and she still has problems years later.
    @quilteryoyo I didn’t get into all the details with her, my head was spinning, I asked about full recovery and she said I’ll be fully recovered next year. It’s always fun to have a recovery friend 
    @TheMrWobbly I was thinking of the walking miles too. I told the race director for my half marathon challenge I was going to do my miles on my knee scooter ha ha
    @eleanorhawkins we are on the same wavelength I have a gym membership and I thought good time to work on the rest of me and they have a pool etc.
    Skip heads back to school the 17th which is crappy since it’s my right foot and I can’t drive. Maybe I can steal one of the scooters from WalMart and drive it around town LOL
    I see @WandaVaughn on my newsfeed so I know she’s alive and kicking.

    Oh remember I told you I won a month of training with a great bootcamp in town? I told him what happened and asked if it was okay to give the training to someone else in the drawing and he said he would do that, but my month is good whenever I can come out and join. What a nice guy.

    @Avidkeo the surgery is Jan 15th. They need to wait for the blister to heal first so it doesn’t get infected. It is a bit ugly isn’t it.
    @hamsterwheel thanks on the tattoo on the outside is says Dad and the inside it says Mom.
    I figured the picture would add to the shoe, running clothes and food porn ha ha we have broken bones porn

    That makes the tattoo even better! Love it. And yes lol! The injury porn haha. Glad you have your sense of humor intact despite it all.

    @skippygirlsmom that tattoo is a nice accent for your multicolored and swollen ankle! Yikes, it looks so painful and that blister is wicked. You sound in good spirits though! Good for you. I did end up signing up for that half marathon challenge you shared so I'm planning on doing my first one this weekend. I was thinking about you for that, but if you can do some walking, maybe biking, and swimming hopefully you can maintain some activity (eventually, when you are sufficiently recovered). I know a lot of people who really love aqua running in the pool for rehab if that's an option. Very nice to let you delay the training you won too.

    I signed up to go to group speedwork tonight and I'm regretting it. Need to get myself moving soon. It sure sounds nicer to just sit on the couch.

    @hamsterwheel6 and @katharmonic thanks I've had it a long time with Dad last year unfortunately added Mom.

    @katharmonic I'm glad you signed up for the challenge. I'm going to talk to the Suzanne to see if I can do my HMs another way.

    @Cricketmad88 Congratulations on your 5K PB!!! Awesome!

    @skippygirlsmom That looks just awful! Big hugs to you! Love that you gave your boot camp away and the guy is going to let you do it later. That's sweet of both of you! I'm hoping you will be able to walk after a few weeks and hopefully do some light running. I'll have to wait until after my surgery to see what my specific orders are.

    Thanks @Teresa502 . Nice run this morning. I find keeping my ears warm helps a lot too.

    Wow! That's a great run @SummerSkier ! Mile 5 is usually when I start tiring out, not getting faster. You rock!

    @hamsterwheel6 Glad you are listening to your body. Hope the hamstring feels better after stretching it out.

    No run today. I did a session on the stationery bike followed by strength. I'm feeling really good atm, just in the groove. I'm determined to make this groove last at least a month, given I usually fall off after 2 weeks.

    Remember that feeling @Avidkeo, for times when you don't want to continue. You are doing great!

    I have signed up and am on the Hamakua coast of Big Island of Hawaii

    Just saw this. I have put in my data for Jan 1 through Jan 6. (I'm trying to do RED January this month...) Oh, and I am in Durham, NC, USA.

    I could not figure out how to enter fractional minutes so I did some rounding.

    Cheers!

    Also, on Challenge Hound, what does "miles behind pace" refer to? Pace for the entire group to finish the challenge?

    I know we are an apolitical group, I wanted to let our American members know im thinking of you all today.

    Be kinda boring when there isn't this political drama eh? Though boring looks good right now.

    this might sound really bad, but its the first time in months that the news hasn't been wall to wall covid, which was refreshing 🙈🙈

    I absolutely understand what you mean. Doesn't sound bad at all. Sounds human.
