It was bound to happen....

That's right, my first Step-Aerobics injury. You heard it here first, people...step aerobics is a dangerous sport.

Last night, I was working out with "Hans & Frans"...To back up, my father refers to my workout instructor with the aforementioned nicknames, because he insists I only work out because my instructor MUST be attractive, strapping young men. On the contrary, she is a plump middle-aged lady, but she can yell with the best of them.

So back to the story; I was in the middle of a Charleston, L-Step, Lunge to Squat combo...

















...when I thought it would be the perfect time to fix my ponytail. I took my eyes away from the difficult combo and I proceeded to completely roll my ankle. But I dug down deep to finish the physically demanding routine like the true athlete that I am.

Tonight, I am doing what any good patient should do....use lots of ice, take lots of Ibuprofen, and watch last night's Biggest Loser with a glass of white.



But I am determined to recover from my tragic injury, since my friend Sarah will be joining me tomorrow night for another rousing evening of Step Class with Hans & Frans. And now that I've blogged about it, she
has to go with me, sucka :)

Callie. My word. This post brings tears to my eyes. Pictures? Graphics? Hyperlinks? I am proud of your html code. Also, I am ready for tonight. Hans and Frans can bring it.

Oh, my daughter. How I feel your pain. I can not criticize your mishap for I never had a pony tail to deal with. It does remind me, though, of how I almost tripped on a sidewalk bump while changing the stations of my radio headset while running. It is just best to pay attention during oxygen depleting, motion oriented activities. I hope your ankle recovers quickly - looks like you are applying the best medical procedures! PS - here is a link to the REAL Hans and Franz:
