So I went on this really great hike today along a great trail up and down the delaware river - did about 6 miles and then i twisted my ankle - badly. No cell service, my husband had to walk a few more miles to find a park ranger and eventually (2.5 hours later) they found their way to me.
So here i sit with my leg up and ice on my ankle which is now the size of a balloon. This isnt really new for me, im a klutz and do this at least once a year. So i really have to take care of this so i dont have long term effects.
HOWEVER i cannot stop exercising! I have been doing sooooo good with working out and i know im going to be out of comission for a couple of weeks at least while this ankle heals. I cannot even walk on it now. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what I can do to keep the fitness side up without putting any weight on an ankle until i heal? I thought about swimming...not sure if this would work to. Or am i just out of luck
