So I was out running tonight like I always do. I had a headlight like I always do. Was about two miles into it and hit the edge of the sidewalk and rolled my ankle. It was pretty bad because I went down like a ton of bricks so dramatically that two cars stopped to make sure I was OK. Initially it hurt like a rainbow, but after a few seconds I was able to go again. I was exactly half way from the room, so both ways was 2 miles back. Plodded along at my pace I always do for about 1/4 mile, then I realized it was bad. I looked down and swelling had started and that was the cause of my pain. I decided to walk home, and by the time I got home, I had a huge cankle from my knee to my foot.

The joint doesn't hurt, just the swelling is bothersome. I am hoping the swelling goes down fast as I don't think there is really any damage. Of course I just payed for the Big Dam Bridge 100 here in Little Rock that is next weekend. Fingers crossed the swelling goes down and I can do the ride in ten days. If not, nice donation to the local foundation.

Rainbow rainbow rainbow.

I hope your feeling better but I have to say you wouldn't have a Cankle if your were riding...what is the meaning of this running thing anyway...

Are you running in your riding shoes??? No wonder you have two left feet....

Rest, ice, compression, elevation...repeat! Hope you heal quickly.

So next day was insane. I couldn't even see my toes or ankle bones. Went to the flight surgeon on Thursday and got a lucky draw. There was a civilian doc who was a sports medicine doc helping out in clinic. He gave me the advice I though I would get....RICE. He did give me a cool sock to keep blood from pooling in the ankle though which I think has helped. They took an xray on Thursday and there is nothing broken. He said it was a 2nd degree sprain. I spent from Friday after class till today with a$$ planted frimly in the recliner in my billeting room. Feet were naturally higher than the heart when reclined, so it was perfect. I got up twice to eat but spent the day studying and watching non-AFN TV. I had an ice chest I brought so I alternated ice and no ice for 15/45 all day. Result this morning was severe ugliness in bruises, but hardly any swelling. Pain is maybe a 1 or 2 when I move it wrong. Going to hit the stationary bike with zero resistance tomorrow to see how it feels, but I think I might just make the ride on Saturday.
Follow up question. Does anyone have experience with KT tape or Spidertech tape? I don't think I will need it, but I can get both here in Little Rock. Better safe than sorry since there is one hill on the ride that is 16% for 1/2 mile and I only have a 21 on the back. The extra support might help
