An Unfortunate Twist

Of my ankle last night, 2.5 miles into a 6 mile run. Negotiating an uneven curb in the semi-darkness. Curse my night runs!

I continued because the pain wasn't all that bad. But after the exercise endorphins wore off, my left ankle got stiff and sore. And this morning was no better. Hobbled to the store for an ace bandage before work. It seems to have loosened up through the day.

More Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation treatment for today and tomorrow. Hope this doesn't ruin Long Beach race for me, but since I am not totally wedded to the idea of running it, I'm not going to push myself.

More to come as the ankle heals...
