When I first sat down to write this post, I thought “Umm I didn’t work out so much this week.” But it was actually not such a poor showing. Let’s dive in! My ankle is still nagging me (argh!) so I didn’t do much running or jumping. Bummer. I skipped a 10K I was meant to run on Saturday because I don’t want to make things worse.
Here is what I did do. Am I smart or a slacker?

Matt (Remember Matt? He’s been around this whole time but if he wants the spotlight he can get his own blog) teased me that it was overkill and obsession, but I learned a lot of things that I think helped me. Instead of summarizing my findings, since I’m not a medical researcher (I mean, by trade, I am a resident expert in all things googleable) I’m just going to tell you what worked for me. So if you have a lingering sprain that just won’t go away, read on.
