Hi gang, I've been out of action for a while now, unable to run after I sprained my ankle (embarrassingly I sprained it walking and not running!)
Are there any experts out there who can tell me when it is safe for me to run again?
I must have sprained it at least 8 weeks ago now, and I did go to my GP after it happened. It didn't really swell very much so she wasn't overly concerned with me strapping it up or anything.
The majority of the pain has gone, it's just that when I put a small amount of weight in the same way that my foot landed, I can still feel a slight tinge in the tendons around my ankle bone bit on the outside of my foot. It is only a slight tinge, but I don't want to start running on it too early in case I do longer term damage.
Any ideas? Do I sound safe to start running again or should I wait until my ankle doesn't hurt or feel odd in the slightest?
I really want to get back into my running routine, I miss Laura!!
Thanks gang, really appreciate any sound advice.
