So, it turns out, a tattoo right over your ankle bone hurts like a mutha. My friend who did it laughs at me a little, he doesn’t think they hurt that badly…but my body begs to differ. One more day at work, and I should be cleared to run a bit. I’ll probably do it. And it’s probably gonna hurt. Online resources say to expect several weeks of healing time. I MISS RUNNING! I’m terrified that this is the beginning of the end of all I’ve accomplished, and I’ll have to start all over. If I’d realized, the tat would’ve waited, I think. Still moving, still losing…but so frustrated that I can’t just go run 30. I guess the up is that my hips finally feel all better. And I’m a half pound away from my mini goal of a normal BMI. Can I just fast-forward thru healing up my self-inflicted ankle pain now?
