Change in plans

Again!!!  After yesterday's post, which ended rather abruptly, I talked to Hubby about the trail running and he brought up a good point that I had forgotten.  Last time I did any serious trail running I began a cycle of sprained ankles that lead to where I am now.  I was in really good shape running, biking, swimming, doing road races and triathlons, and basically feeling like a million bucks.  Then I decided to try trail running.  I did it a few times and really liked it so made it a regular part of my routine.  Then I twisted my ankle and was out of everything for a few days.  When I got back into it I quickly twisted the other ankle and was out again.  This went on for about 4 months.  I would twist one then the other then the first.  Now I believe that my right ankle is weak because of this.  I can twist it walking on flat ground if I don't have good, solid shoes on.  After talking to him I realized that that may have been what was tickling the back of my mind and why I was a little anxious about it.  Once I thought about it I decided that was not a good option at this time.  I'm heavier then I was then. I'm not as athletic/muscular as I was then.  I'm not as agile as I was then.  So I'm not going to do it. What I am going to do is get the workout room in some semblance of order so that I have room to do more than my elliptical.  I don't have the money to get the shelving I need to put everything away but I can move things to a corner and out of my way until we do get the shelves we want.  Once the workout room is in order I'll be able to do my DVD's again which is truly what I love anyway.  I may even get a treadmill. Actually, I will get a treadmill I just may get it sooner then I thought I would :)
