So I sprained my ankle only two weeks into the programme and since then I have been on the injury couch for 7 long weeks. I have been walking normally on it for about 3 weeks and could even hop on the injured leg. Great, I thought, I'm sure I can run on it by now. I decided to start back at week 1 just to ease my self in carefully. however after the third run I had to stop and walk the rest.ankle swelled up and went red and hurt and has been hurting since although I can walk ok. I had it in my mind that this would be a test run to check out the condition of my ankle but I couldn't help but feel disappointed. I guess there is more healing needed before I can run on it so going to give it a few more weeks before I try again. Reluctantly returns to the couch with ice pack 😔
