A Bum Ankle

by Terry 8/7/2008 3:42:00 PM

I sprained my ankle last week, simply walking down the stairs no less. I sprained the same ankle two years ago and the doctors said had I done it any worse I would have needed surgery to fix it. I have not since had the same flexibility or strength with my left foot. I have tried deliberately in the last couple months to work my ankle and stretch it out and build strength. I think I was making progress, which is why, I am theorizing, I reinjured it so easily.

My theory is that I have been stretching and gaining flexibility I had lost. This gain of mobility is not always uniform and parts of my ankle move better than others. When I walked down the stairs my foot flexed in a way it had not previously been able to flex and the less flexible portion of my foot tried to move more than it should have. It was not happy.

So, I find I am more grumpy than normal and I cannot workout as I like. I will try a light workout tonight, before the Leadership class I have to teach. If I fair well tonight, I will try tomorrow afternoon as well.
