Yesterday I visited a doctor who checked my ankles with ultrasonograph. Hopefully he has found the root cause of my continuous ache in the ankle. He told me several interesting things.

1. I have too large interarticular spaces in general. I can do nothing about it, just live with it and make the muscles around as strong as possible. This is the main reason I twist my ankles so often. I will begin special exercises for my ankles.

2. I have got some kind of liquid in my right ankle, which prevent the ankle to move properly and creates a pain. This liquid must be absorbed and to do that, I will take some pills. (I hope it works).

3. I should start to run as much as it does not hurt. I like this kind of advise. My previous doctor just told me - "don't do anything"

I am very positive about my running future now and I hope to be back on trail soon.

The winter is over?

Probably not yet. But days are longer, air is warmer and snow is gone. For now. This would be ideal for more intensive running. I really deserve to run, to feel the fresh wet air in the woods, to hear the birds talk and ... But my ankle still does not allow me to do it. I tried several times to run on flat surface, but I can do it just for a short while. So I am just walking.
Last Saturday I took my bike out for the first time this year. I wanted to bike for about an hour. Unfortunately, after 2 miles I developed a flat. I had a reserve inner tube with me, but ... I forgot to take a pump :-(. So I just walked back.

I hope next time it will be better.
