Just a little twinge 😳

I have a little twinge in my ankle, not a twist, not a sprain - a little uncomfortable and a tiny bit swollen. It's my first running injury ( except for the tuning lungs in the first few weeks) and I don't know whether to risk tomorrow's w7r3?

I don't want to make it worse, but will be gutted if I can't go tomorrow. Any advice gratefully accepted 😳

Tuning lungs should be burning lungs 😂

Haha I was wondering what 'tuning lungs' were thinking I must look that up 😁😁

I would rest it up for a day or so and see what it is like on Friday and have a go then

Poor you. I know how you feel but I would rest it too and if it's swollen ice pack and elevate it. Needs to be raised above your heart. It's better to rest now and miss a day or two than make it worse and have to miss weeks 😞

What the other two said. I'm into week 2 on the injury couch because I ignored twinges. I know how you feel but better some disappointment now, than lots of disappointment later.

I feel your pain pollyp1. I also battled on to w2r3 when my ankle & knee gave out. I am walking more comfortably now but I'm going to wait a bit longer before I go back to the programme. Chin up I'm sure you'll be back soon.

Right back at you! More or less in the same place as you. Chin up and looking to the future!! Hope you're up and running soon.
