It’s been 7 weeks since I tore the syndesmosis ligament in my right ankle. That very morning I ran 8 miles and was feeling great. Tonight I sit here having had no physical exercise since that day, and it’s really bugging me. I have put on ten pounds and it really sucks! I know I can get the weight off quickly when I can get working out again, but I feel really grossed out. Pray that I’ll be able to discipline my eating habits to work within the framework I am having to live with this injury, and that this thing will heal quickly. I have noticed quite clearly the vital importance of physical exercise and its affect on life as a whole – mentally, emotionally, and spirituality.
