Ankle Again

29 Oct

Ten days ago, I drove 320 miles to a race in Connecticut.  I had hoped that traveling with the college running club to complete in a NIRCA regional race would help me recapture some of what I had missed by not running competitively in college.

Sadly, I sprained my ankle during the warm-up, thirty minutes before the race started, and all I was able to capture was 640 wasted miles on my car.

Compared to last year’s sprain, this one was minor, and while I haven’t been running I have managed to enjoy the time off via weight lifting, ankle excercises, and excruciating ice-bucket-ankle-soaking.  I’m hoping to come back sometime this week.

    ouch! As a basketball player, I (somewhat) feel your pain; although I’ve never quite driven 640 miles for a sprain. (I did do about 35 miles for a sprain once, which sounded bad until I read about your experience).

    Glad it’s at least not as serious as previously. I’m thinking about trying to get back into running (I did a bit in high school), but I have a quite a hump to get over.

    Oh, and thanks for the electoral projection website! Interesting stuff.

    that’s such a bummer. I hope you at least got to see some fall colors!
