Update on the ankle

I spent the better part of Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the couch RICEing and have come a long way since Thursday. I can put weight on my left side and even walk around unassisted...though limpy. I even hobbled on to the ball diamond yesterday for our first game with my 'family' league. I couldn't miss it but I promise, I took it very easy. (courtesy runners are a godsend!) It's feeling tender today (punishment for insisting on playing!) but not unbearable. I'll take it wasy for a few days til my game on Thursday. :)

I know the running will be on hold for at least another week to two, but I'm okay with that. In a previous post I mentioned that my left side has been feeling achy, so maybe this is just a needed break. There's wiggle room in my program, so it's all good. The way I see it, I'm just getting the injuries out of the way early in the season.

Yikes, I'm just catching up! That was a nasty hit you took in the leg.

One of the reasons I gave up ball two years ago, good for you to get up to bat and blast it to the outfield....good hit!

Take care and continue to RICE!

The RICE strategy is good. Don't worry about your down time from running, the break is good for your body.
