After 6 weeks my ankle is still weak, so very weak. I had no idea that stepping off a curb incorrectly would cause such a dramatic set back in my training. Needless to say I will not be running in any 5 or 10ks soon. I need to focus on healing and strengthening my ankle before I can begin to move forward with my training. I am also finding alternate ways to exercise (instead of running). I am currently doing a few work out DVDs at home including:
Winsor Pilates – which is an oldie but a goodie, I love her abs course and it doesn’t use my ankle at all. Hallelujah. (apparently Miley Cirus does Winsor … I don’t keep up with her goings on, but when I imaged searched for Winsor Pilates she was all over the Google.)
Fluidity: Seat & Thigh Video – This video does require the use of my ankle, so I complete the moves as tolerated on my injured ankle (left) and then do the same number of reps on the right ankle. Even though this is a serious leg/glutes workout, it also works shoulders and arms a bit.
Jillian Michaels: 6 Week Six-Pack – I have a serious love/hate with Jillian. I love that she can seriously whip my body into shape in 6 weeks. I hate that while doing the training I want to kick her in her perfect abs. (Whoa, where did that come from you ask? Do the first viedo… then we will talk.) **FYI: This streams free on Amazon Video for Prime members 🙂
I have yet to find a shoulder/arm DVD that I really like. Anybody have a good suggestion?
