NYC Marathon 2015 Qualified (and an injury)

It’s official. I logged in to the New York Road Runners site and I’ve qualified for the 2015 New York City Marathon. Legit.

NYRR 9 +1 Qualified!

I am more antsy than before to heal my ankle. I want to run. At the orthopedic’s direction, I scheduled a MRI for next week. Hopefully it shows something easily fixable (and forever preventable!).

It’s time for me to stop exacerbating the issue by spinning, running and walking everywhere. I am going to seriously try to lay off it, even if that completely cramps my style.

I looked high and low for a class that didn’t involve using your legs. It was not easy. Today I took Physique 57’s Fab Arms and Abs class which fit the bill. Is there anything else like that out there?

Does anyone else have tips for working out with an ankle injury? How can I stay active and in shape without aggravating it? Any tricks to make it heal faster?

    Congrats on getting in to the 2015 marathon! Having run it twice (both times with tricky IT bands), my advice to you in healing is take a break. I know it’s not what you probably want to hear, but letting yourself heal is the best thing you can do. Your fitness will be there when you’re healed, I promise! 🙂

      Thanks Monica. I know you’re right. It’s tough to completely let it go.
