My question says it all really. 8 weeks post sprain (hurt it on week 6 run 3) my ankle still isnt ok. Im too nervous to run on it. Its been xrayed etc and they havent contacted me so i assume its nothing more sinister.
I really want to get back into doing some exercise so am waiting for my exercise bike to be delivered. I have read that as long as you keep a good resistance and speed it is as effective as running, and alot easier on the joints (which is good as i was getting a lot of hip pain from running)
But, i dont want it to be a fruitless buy... but i dont know how to do it? I wondered about using the c25k podcasts while riding instead - do you think this would work? Does anyone know if there is any specific guidence on using an exercise bike or have knowledge of using one and what i should be aiming for at the start?
I assume my fitness level is still better after 8 weeks of not running but who knows...
I will try running again when the weather is better and ankle totally healed!
