3 days before the marathon/the irony of it all...

Yup, that's my ankle. Yup, that's an ace bandage.

On my last last training run last night(~4 miles @ roughly race pace), I stepped off a curb wrong, rolled my ankle in, and felt a shooting pain up my leg. I walked a little bit, made sure I was capable of further movement, and after the nausea subsided, ran the rest of the way home. Iced my ankle after I got home, spent a fitful night trying to sleep through the pain, and spent most of the morning today at convenient care. The outcome of that is:
  • Most likely not a stress fracture (the doctor didn't think there was any sign of a stress fracture, but as usual will be having a radiologist double-check), most likely just sprained
  • Should be able to still run Chicago, albeit in a bit more pain than I'd hoped for :)

I'm on rest/ice/NSAIDs between now and Sunday...

Please be careful and take it easy!

Go pre-feminist for a couple of days and have Kathleen wait on you hand and (so to speak) foot.
