A setback!!!

I am pretty irritated tonight. I was taking down the trampoline yesterday. Everything was going well and I got it all the way down. Then I began hauling the stuff near the back fence so we could easily access it. On my last load I stepped in a hole and felt my already weak ankle twist.

I was able to push past the pain initially, trying hard not to let it get to me. Then it began swelling. It got bigger and bigger last night. I still tried to act like nothing was wrong. That didn’t last long.

My fears came to fruition. I sprained the darn thing. It hurt worse last night the more I was on it.

Today I realized I would not be able to run on it without hurting it more. I could feel it was super weak. I thought I might be able to tape it, but even then I am afraid it will twist and hurt me worse.

So, no running. Not until it’s better.

I can still walk on it. I did walk on it tonight, but no power walking either. I thought I could but once I started walking I felt it twist slightly. I caught it before I did more damage.

I am going to still go to spin on Wednesday and do most of the weight training this week. I should be OK, just lower cardio stuff on the weekends for a bit. (Of course moving next weekend should be interesting).

  1. The saga continues. Tune in next week when our courageous angel battles mutant spiders as they try to make off with her car. 😛

    Geez, lady. We don’t mind a slow day on your blog. Self injury or mutilation isn’t necessary. 😉

    Take it easy. Don’t push yourself too hard. I sprained my ankle in kindergarten and it turned me into a couch jockey for two weeks, and kids are made like Rubbermaid. There are exercises you can do on your butt. Take a load off those feet for a while. 🙂

  2. Girl I feel your pain. I did that to mine about a year ago. The doctor actually thought I had broken it. Thank god it was just a bad sprain and pulled tendions. Is that another Blystra curse? I am always twisting my ankles. Just walkin and steping a pebble can cause me to go down. I hate it.

    I hope you feel better very soon. Just take it easy, if I was closer I would bring you my crutches!

  3. Ouch!

    Now you’ll have to take it easy! Use the magic word: DELEGATE! You decide, they do, you watch ….

  4. Ice 20 minutes to numb the pain, 20 minutes heat to promote the healing. 3 times a day!

  5. Be careful! When I sprained my ankle and didn’t slow down and rest, I sprained it three more times before I got wise and stayed completely off of it and it finally healed. Take it easy! Hope you feel better.
