Personal:

Attended Japanese high school and finished in March 2020. Was very lucky to be able to be a member of a very good team of runners at my high school, even though I was injured most of the time and was not able to be much of a contributor. Am currently doing an Engineering internship at a large manufacturer of Automotive transmissions, etc. It is really exciting. In spring of 2021, if COVID-19 has subsided, I am planning to serve an LDS mission, after which I plan to go to college and study Engineering.

Did a HIIT workout today that didn't require me to use my ankle or put weight on my ankle.

The workout included laying on my back and lifting my legs in the air and then doing what was something like bicycle pedaling in the air.

One interval was 1 minute full out sprint followed by 30 second rest. I did this a total of 15 times after which I was totally dead.

Tried putting weight on my ankle today. There was still pain. I don't think it was as bad as before, but the doctor said that if there is still pain to stay on crutches. So I will continue to be on crutches for the next three days at least.

Tried putting weight on my ankle this morning.  There was hardly any pain at first, but after a while I felt a little pain, so I will use the crutches during the day and when at home I will try to go without.

There is a Princess cruise ship in the harbor here that I can see from my home.  There have been 20 people on the who have come down with the Corona virus.  They have been transporting those people to a hospital here, and I just read in the news that the hospital is the hospital just up the hill from my home.  A little unsettling to know that the virus is that close to home.

I wonder how long the ship in the harbor will be under quaranteen.  There is an America on the ship who sent a video to his family explaining the situation.  He has diabetes and is running out of Insulin.  He has asked for help and his requests have been ignored he said.  That is a little scary.

The pain in my ankle is gradually leaving, and the black and blue areas are also starting to gradually disappear.

Did some HIIT exercises today to maintain an elevated heart rate.  Also did a lot of core and strengthening exercises.

Very little pain now in my ankle. When I am home I don't use my crutches. I still use them when I go out, just to be safe.

I usually go to church on Sunday, but I will skip this week again. There is too much walking involved for me to go to church, and it is a killer on crutches, so I will stay home and relax.

My ankle is feeling a little better everyday.

I have to go to the doctor on Thursday for the doctor to check on how it is.

I can't wait to be able to walk and run normal again.

AM:

Went to the doctor today. He said everything is looking good. He said if I want I could gradually start running next week. He said start off slow and see how things go. He also advised running at first on a treadmill so there is a nice level running surface with no turns.

The only problem, I don't really have easy access to a treadmill. :(

Was able to attend church today for the first time in a few weeks. I felt no pain in my ankle walking to church.

The doctor says that I can start easy running this week, but I think I will do an easy week of just walking , and then gradually start adding in running next week.

AM: Went to church today, but there were only about half the people there. The LDS church has made cancelled all meetings here except Sacrament meeting, which is voluntary, until Japan can get a handle on the Corona Virus.

They have cancelled a lot of marathons and races here in Japan because of the virus.
