I think I need to vent more than anything, so bear with me. I sprained my ankle pretty badly tonight while playing volleyball. Grrrr!!
I've been exercising very faithfully since I started in January and I hate, hate, hate having to take time off from that. It'll probably be about a week before I can do anything high impact. Unfortunately, that pretty much describes all of my exercise... I run, do step aerobics, play volleyball. I also rock climb, which I can't safely do with a cranked ankle. (Especially the hikes in and out of the climbing sites.)
I've got the RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) going on and I'm going to stay off of it almost completely for 24 hours. Hopefully I can start walking on Wednesday. This is the worst sprain I've ever had, and I've had some doozies before.
I'm just frustrated. My DH is trying to be helpful but "well, you can't be athletic and not expect to get hurt sometimes" isn't exactly what I wanted to hear. "Poor baby, I'll get you some more ice and another pillow" would have been better.
Ok, pity party over.
I'm going to get healed up and get back to it. I just needed a moment to complain about this.
