+++Side note for you... have you tried spinning? no pounding on the ankle .. with a great instructor you can get a fantastic workout... I do boxing as well (on a bag, great workout..) you can stabilize your ankle with a wrap.
Hey, after party prettiness is a good deal ! I hope your back gets better with the PT though ! They can do magic at times.

I don't belong to a gym, but I do have a stationary bike and an elliptical. But they still pale in comparison when it comes to running. I used to wrap my ankle to stabilize it when I was younger, but all it did was make my ankle and foot throb more. I even bought inserts from a (I guess) podiatrist at one point. I also get plantar fasciitis when the ankle is out of whack. It's just a messy situation. So I'll probably run for a week or so, and then stop and maybe go on the elliptical and bike and take it from there. I also have a regular bicycle and could just take a bike ride instead. Hrmm... maybe I'll do that. I do love riding my bike and haven't done that in a while. Just have to recondition my butt for the seat, that's all.

Edit: You know what ? You've just convinced me to do the bike ! Preppin' the bike now for a ride tomorrow morning. Thanks for the spinning suggestion-- you've inspired me to be kinder to my body. My ankle, knees and boobs thank you.
