It looks like despite my nasty fall on Friday, I will be able to run the 10k this Sunday. The swelling has gone down a lot, the bruising on the ankle never got much past a shade of blue, and I can almost walk without limping.
I’m still using an ankle brace, and will probably have to wear this for a few more weeks, but Sunday? I’m going to strap the “active ankle” brace on, and I’ll be out for my run!
Who knows how I’ll do after a 3 week break and a recovering ankle, but having to run something carefully and slowly is still better than not running at all! My only goal? To beat last year’s time.
