After some hard hill repetitions I ran past a building site over some sand
and rocks, twisted my ankle and landed on the ground very hard.
My wounds are not disturbing me but my ankle is swollen like never before.
Question: Besides icing - what can I do?
When is it ok to run again?
What can I do to strengthen my tendons because I twist
both ankles very often. Other people just keep on running
when this happens to them without being injured. The
slightest uneven surface causes injuries to me even when
I just walk.
Are there any ice packs that are re-usable besides the ones you keep in the
fridge? I heard about one you can take with you and just press a button and
the whole things inflates and gets cool. After use you throw it in hot water
to deflate it again.
Thanks for any advice, I'd like to be on the road again as soon as possible.
