Day 144: I’m Broken

Well, not really broken, but I’ve got a nice sprained ankle.
I’d really like to say that I hurt myself doing something hardcore and intense, but nope, that’s not the case. Instead, I hurt myself stretching with my kiddos in math class on Tuesday. We were doing some count-by-2′s “reach for the stars” where stand on our tippy toes and reach up into the sky. On my way down, I swerved to avoid one of my children and rolled my ankle. I’m fine. It’s tender but I have full range of motion and I can do pretty much anything, including playing hockey on a field trip with my students, which I conveniently left out of my story to the doctor this afternoon.

Moral of the story: compression wrap brace for 2 weeks, follow-up appointment in 2 weeks, no running for a month.

  1. I may be a hypocrite to say it, but do rest that ankle.
