Sprain Ankle !

so of course just couples weeks shy of doing my half marathon ( For June 22 ) i sprain my ankle 2 weeks ago ! and I still can't run !
Ankle and top of the foot is still swollen but I am hoping that may be maybe I will still do my run on the 22...or at least try walking in it.

Any experience with sprain Ankle ? How long it took you to recover ?

I hate to say it, but June 22 seems a bit soon to be running if it's only been two weeks since you sprained your ankle. It usually takes a good six to eight weeks to recover from that.

Have you been wrapping it and using ice? That might help the healing process happen a little sooner. I still don't think you should run on it yet though because you could injure it even more.

I agree with Twyladee if you do the half walk or run it's a long distance and you're at risk of making the injury worse

I'd be gutted an I know you are

I'm so sorry that you have sprained your ankle I agree with the other ladies about the half marathon. It is quite soon and you don't want to risk making the injury any worse. I hope it starts to get better soon

Agree with everybody! I have never had such an experice with ankle, but once i jumped and injured my heel. It took a looong time for to start even to walk normally. So i guess you need to be patient and give your ankle to fully recover. Otherwise you will make even worse and it may become your lifetime hurt!!

Thank you

Today it feel a tiny bit better ...i think i will still try to walk it i know they have shuttle bus that help people to go from one spot to a other if need be so at least i can rely on that . i paid over $150 for it and race are never refundable too plus i had made a friend doing in it with me i feel bad leaving her on her own so i am going to do my best and of course will take the bus if need be ...by the 22 of june it will over 6 weeks so hopefully the ankle will be OK

Ouch! Sprains are the worst. I swear the breaks are better. They heal quicker and more clean. I once had a sprained ankle for about 2 months. I would think that I was better and then run and mess it up again.
