I went back to se the physio today after two weeks of ankle excercises, bike and cross training at the gym. I've been doing the excercises he gave me, diligently and been really strict with myself and guess what? It paid off!
I've to start back slowly, on the treadmill at first to see how it is but he said he can see no reason why I shouldn't start running outside again soon. He said to keep the ankle strengthening excercises as part of my routine to avoid another injury. I am we'll chuffed!
I'm off to the gym now to try it out..... Yippee!
