Injured Life

Hello everyone. It has been a crazy week and a half. Recently I injured my ankle. I was playing soccer in gym class and got kicked. In result of this I tore all my ligaments and sprained my ankle. When I was at the hospital the nurse told me that I would have to take a week off of physical activity.

 

Once I was told the news that I sprained my ankle and tore all my ligaments I was shocked. I knew that it was going to take a long time to recover and the more rest I got the faster the recovery would be. Since my injury I have been on crutches at school and at home. I have had amazing support from my friends and family at this time and overall I am thankful that I did not break anything and that it was just a sprain!

 

Of course I miss running and doing other workouts, how I am getting through this is just taking it day by day and resting. I am slowly getting better and stronger each day. I cannot wait till I get back to running again.

 

Being injured has taught me so many things. It has taught me to be strong and that I can get through the pain, it has taught me how much I really love to workout. I really miss doing  running, and yoga. Some days I wish this injury never happened but sometimes life just happens and we got to move on and be strong. I believe life teaches us lessons and I learned through this injury that I am strong and will get through this.

 

Since I cannot do much I have slowly done a little weight training mostly focusing on my upper body as I am getting better. Honestly getting to do that light weight training made me feel so much better as I missed working out so much! I am thankful that I am slowly recovering well and I hope to be back at it fully again soon.

 

I am thankful for everyone who has helped me through this and blessed for all the positive vibes. I never thought I would get injured and be on crutches in my life, but stuff happens and you just got to keep your head up with a positive attitude and keep smiling. In the end everything will be okay.

 

Happy Blogging,

Kat
