I've been training for a 10k and the race is on Sunday (in 3 days). I've been getting myself in best condition possible and excited about the race. Then yesterday I was walking along the pavement (in smart work attire, not training) and somehow managed to be ultra clumsy and trip on a kerb and go over on my ankle. Of all weeks to happen - pretty annoyed.
I had some fairly intense pain in the evening which thankfully died down with some RICE and ibroprufen. This morning it doesn't feel too bad to walk on, but any side to side movements of the ankle is a sharp pain.
My hope is if I avoid doing any more training now and just rest it I might be okay for Sunday. If its still sore, does anyone find strapping up the ankle helps? Anyone else had a similar incident?
