More a lumber than a run, but...

I done a runnings.

Having accidentally, but at the same time consciously, decided to take a jog for a few feet down the platform on the way home last night, I though I'd have a go at a jog/walk today.  It's been 16 weeks since I had my ATFL repair surgery and I was supposed to be running again at 12 weeks, so I figured it was time.

I did a modified C25K week one, day one session:- 9 mins brisk walk (to get to the park, so I can jog on soft ground), 5x 60s jog/90s walk, 2x 90s jog/90s walk, 5 mins brisk walk.

I do have considerable discomfort on the ankle, but it's a clicking sensation and on the opposite side to where the work was done.  So I figure that's OK discomfort.  I've also been doing lots of stabilisation exercises over the last 4 weeks which has made quite a difference.  However, my jogging is most definitely lop-sided and it seems mainly down to psychological reasons and not putting faith in things that are actually quite fine.

It's been bloody fabulous to get outside in running kit and break into a jog, if only for a few minutes in total.  More please.
