Back Into It

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, and it is mostly because I’ve been trying to figure out the whole arthritis thing when it comes to my ankle. It has truly become my Achilles Heel, of sorts. It turns out there isn’t too much that can be done for osteo-arthritis aside from controlling inflammation. The good news is that there is quite a lot that can be done for inflammation, long-term, aside from icing.

In my desperation to continue running, I figured I’d throw the kitchen sink at inflammation and cut back severely on sugar and carbs. It turns out that this works great! While I’ve been on a low-sugar, low-carb, no processed grains, no alcohol diet over the past month or so, I have been able to resume regular running and HIIT workouts. I’m super-excited! While I can’t get in the volume I used to, it is good to be back in the game and I’m hoping things progress so that I can up the intensity. Back in May I could hardly walk up stairs without (literally) crawling, so this progress has been amazing - and all thanks to changes in what I am eating.

Anyway, Thanks to Christa Stryker and her amazing 12minuteathlete app, I had a super-fun workout yesterday. If you haven’t checked out Christa’s site or her app, I highly recommend them. She makes workouts super-easy and her app even has an integrated timer, so there’s no fumbling to build a workout in your timer before you actually get to work out. Super-easy!
