Saturday my ankle was feeling sore so I took it easy. I ran a few errands but nothing out of the ordinary. Then, I woke up on Sunday and it was really sore and seemed to be swelling, maybe I was just paying more attention, I'm not sure. WTF? I met my mom for brunch to celebrate her birthday, which is actually today, she's 70, how the heck did that happen, Happy Birthday MOM! After lunch she wanted me to go to Zellers with her but I declined in favour of going home and putting my foot up. I woke up this morning and it's even worse, I must be doing jumping jacks in my sleep or something and now I am back to limping my way from the GO train to the office.
As I limped along I heard my favourite running song. You know the one, the one you crank up to eleven cause it gets you fired up no matter when it starts to play on your playlist, even if it's at the end of your run. This one makes me want to stop and boogie as it ramps up to my favourite part of the song but that would look really silly so I just run faster… I'd link the youtube version of the song for you but the ones I found online are not nearly as good as the version on my iPod…
What would you do, if you woke up tomorrow,
half your life had slipped away?
Where we running? I wanna know who's winning,
what is this price we all have to pay?
Where is the finish? What does it cost…
(not the end of the lyric but I don't have a clue what he's saying next)

incidentally he also sings my second favourite running song called Hey You...
I was completely bummed to hear the song because I love it and even though I have been known to skip a workout or two not working out at all really really sucks. (did I just say that?). I think I have my eczema problem mostly sorted out so perhaps I can get into the pool with a pool buoy (or is that a pull buoy) so I don’t have to kick my feet and do some laps. That might help my disposition. Despite the fact that I've lost 5 lbs in 2 weeks which is amazing for me, at the moment I’m completely bummed out. Completely.. :-(
I could not find a suitable photo of a swollen ankle or a broken leg or someone sad and miserable to I stole John's lolcats idea and this one actually made me giggle which is no small feat today.
That's all I got...
