Well....crap.

Went to Ironworks this morning. Warmed up on a nice 10a. Felt perhaps a bit more tired than I thought I was, but since I climbed a bunch yesterday that's totally understandable. Feeling a bit nervous, I hopped on my very first 11a ever.

Two moves up, I slip, fall, and twist my ankle on the landing.

I don't know how bad it is. It hurts like a bitch when I put weight on it, but it fine otherwise. I stayed home today and am icing and elevating and taking ibuprofen, and the swelling isn't too bad...there is a little discoloration.

Twist? Sprain? Obscure tiny bone broken? Dunno yet. My hunch is that it's a light sprain, but I'll have a better idea after a day or two. It may have knocked me out of the burpee challenge - more than a couple days out and I'll be deeper in debt than I'm interested in paying off. More alarmingly, it may have knocked me out of the TRS comp on Friday and/or the Fight Gone Bad benefit Saturday. We'll just have to rest, recover, and hope.

Injuries are a pain in the ass.

Are you doing R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, elevation)? How is it feeling today? That's so shitty. I'm sorry :(

Bummer Brah. You can do the FGB fundraiser RXI (prescribed injured)with Ynez.

I am doing RICE. Pretty certain now that it isn't broken, but it still forces me to hobble around. I tried a one-legged burpee today. That didn't work out so great.

I'm hoping to still do FGB, but TRS3 is out (we're going to go watch the debates at an Obama party instead). The thing that has me concerned with FGB is really just the box jumps.

Yeah, you're going to have to make up box jump points somewhere else. You may want to step up and down, if it's still swollen and sore. One day of FGB is not worth several weeks or months of pain.
