    Cool Bad ankle + HM

    I sprained (badly) the ankle that I've had rebuilt twice, so I haven't run in over a month.... and I have a HM in 10 days. The goal will definately be to just "finish upright".

    Louisiana bound!!

    Good luck

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.
    If you had just a minute to breathe and they granted you one final wish would you ask for something like another chance?

    WOW! I finished... but geesh... I really paid. My ankle was NOT impressed with my effort lol. Around mile 6, it started getting really sore and was very swollen. By the time I got to mile 10 I thought I might pass out from the pain. But, I staggered/hobbled thru it and got the BLING!

    I would not recommend anyone doing a HM on a sprained ankle almost two months of NO running.... (I checked my log book - I sprained it the day before Thanksgiving).

    I sprained both my ankles running the Rock and Roll marathon in San Diego on the long slanted part of the highway. It was agony, I had to walk a lotta miles to finish it. I can't even imagine STARTING that way.

    I don't know, I think spraining/twisting ankles during the race might suck more... at least I was semi-mentally prepared to be in agony. LOL

    I am SOOOO running this one again though. It was an AWESOME course and very well organized. If I ever decided to make the marathon leap, this one would tempt me......

    Did you neoprene wrap it?
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    Just KT tape. My doc ordered xrays, but the VA just rescheduled... She's worried about a stress fracture. I told her I thought it was soft tissue. After all, I'm the one that's had this silly thing rebuilt twice.... I'd be surprised if it was a fracture.

    Meanwhile, I've cut waaaay back on running and have added some swimming, water walking (against a current), and a stationary bike to the mix. My next official race is in April, so I need to be better prepared!
