Gutted

😞 no running for 6 weeks now!

6 weeks ago I was running week 8 day 3, as I was running down a fairly steep hill I felt something snap in my ankle!! Hobbled home and was in so much pain, ended up going to a &e, no breaks but a sprained ankle, like I said 6 weeks ago!!!!! Much better and able to walk on it, but still feels like someone is jabbing a pencil in my ankle bone 😔

Anyone done similar and returned to the running again, I was really enjoying it and now feel a wobbly mess

Thanks x

Oh, poor you, that’s awful. Hugs. I dont know how to offer advice and can only say I hope it improves soon. It will probably get better suddenly and you will be back out there xx

Sounds horrid..but you have been checked out and you will recover.. I, like many of us have had spells on the IC... my last spell was a long one... and you do get back it. Just take it slowly and steadily and try to exercise.. using all the other bits of your body!

These may help?
