Well after graduating just before Christmas I was doing really well, I had got up to nearly 5K and was running for 35 minutes three times a week.
On Tuesday I completed my run, was feeling really chuffed with myself, went and had a shower then managed to fall down the last 3 stairs while carrying the washing basket.
I heard the crack and knew straight away that I had broken my ankle.
What I didn't know, at this point, quite how badly I had broken it, I had managed to break all 3 bones so technically when I arrived at A&E my foot was not attached at all by any bone to my leg and it bloody hurt!!!
One of the breaks was a spiral fracture the others were straight forward breaks. So after having to have it manipulated in resus , which thankfully they knocked me out for then the following morning they took me into theatre and put a plate and some bolts to hold it all together.
I'm happy to say I was finally let out of hospital yesterday afternoon but I'm on complete rest, no weight bearing at all initially for 2 weeks then either 6 or 8 weeks in plaster and intensive physio before I can WALK again .
Totally gutted after it took so much work to complete the programme, I will have to start from the very beginning but probably not for months yet.
Feeling so sorry for myself, please someone give me that 'I did that and I'm ok now' story to give me some hope that I will run again! Please !!!
