This morning I woke up at 5:35 and then woke up again at 5:45. It took me quite a while to roll out of bed and I left the house at just before 6:30. Good thing, because the sun is rising later and later and it would have been too dark had I left earlier.
I did intervals of jog and walk. Most of it was walking. While I was proud of myself for making the effort, my right ankle really flared up. Severe years back I sprained my ankle and it was mostly fine for a while until I did roller derby. It had cramped up when I first started walking again, then it was fine until I started walking briskly. I remember my physical therapist said I have to build up the strength. So maybe the pain will go away if I use it more. We’ll see.
My stomach has been in knots all morning with what’s happening at home, particularly with my daughter. It’s something I don’t want to share on my blog, just to say that there are issues. It’s tough enough having a teenage daughter, much less one with a mental illness.
We’ll see how things play out. Right now I’m very worried. I need to find times to decompress so I can remain functional. Fortunately going out for my walk/jog helped get my mind off of it for at least 30 minutes. Now when I go to work I need to be focused on work. So I’m going to try my best to do that.
I didn’t take a lot of pictures on my walk/jog. Just two. Here they are:
I hope you have a peaceful day.
