How to turn a 25K into a 3-hour 15K

The end result looks like this:

I've been home for about five hours, continuously icing my ankle. I rolled it at mile 1.69. Yes, I went on to finish the 15K loop. In all honesty, it hurts like hell.

I'll be okay though and will post beautiful pictures (of the course) and all the details (about the rolls AND spills) when I'm not in so much pain and I can think more clearly.

Until later.............

I'm with Alice! Ice it til you can't take it. PT was good for me and my sprain - at least the manipulation and ultrasound were worth it. I haaaate it.

Rest and Heal. There will be other 25Ks for you to tackle...

Ouch! Get well soon. Hopefully the ankle will come back stronger than before!

0h no!! Ankles are the worst. Keep ice on that sucker. It's huge!

Rest up, girly.

Oh crappers. Glad it's the ankle (easier rebound) and not one of your running muscles. Looking forward to hearing how you made the rest of the 15k on a bad wheel. I'll send your injury club card to you.
