Max Ignatius Atlas Year Of Change Day 146
This morning I turned my ankle a bit as I was out running. It was nothing too serious, and I was able to lumber back home before it swelled up, but it’s definitely going to be sore for a while. It would be best to rest and let it heal up before I run again, but I think I can still do upper body workouts if I’m careful. It’s a shame because this minor injury wouldn’t have even bothered me when I was younger, but I guess Father Time comes for us all in one way or another.
Despite my injury, I was still able to get around pretty well. I did all my chores without a hitch (though I obviously opted to drive around instead of walk), and I hardly noticed any pain as I was doing mundane tasks. I still got off my feet earlier than usual, and with my free time I decided to get lost in some reading. Even if I’m sedentary, I can still find other ways to work on myself.

You’d be surprised how much better you look with improved posture.
I was a little bit conflicted during tonight’s workout, as I clearly wanted to be cautious with how hard I worked, but I had also planned to implement some new exercises the night before. I decided it would be best to just forego the new exercises and keep things simple, and I’m sure my ankle thanked me for that!

Quote of the Day
“Every calamity is to be overcome by endurance.” – Virgil
Although I’ve been lucky thus far in that I haven’t really had to deal with injuries, I definitely did a good job of responding to one today. Things could have been a lot worse, which is why I’m glad that I’ve already taken measures to discourage injuries by focusing on my health. After I heal up, I’m going to do even more to prevent injuries in the future.
