Ankle ice cream recovery plan

I had an x-ray on Friday - the doctor I saw was pretty sure it was broken. Luckily the images showed no indication of a break. Whoot! In your face doc!
Or maybe not so lucky, as sprains and strains often take longer to mend than broken bones. Only an MRI will reveal a tear.

I laid on the couch all weekend with my foot up and an ice pack strapped to it. That's it, that's all I did. I did watch every stage of the Tour though.

Photo not too long after icing it on Sunday.
Still big and fat. . . and my ankle is pretty swollen too (Haaaaa, I slay me).

The bruising is beginning to show towards the bottom of the foot/ankle.

I've been keeping up with the rest, elevation and icing. I've even been attempting to ice it from the inside by eating Blizzards - anything for the sake of recovering faster. The ice cream is also keeping up my energy levels while I press the buttons on the remote while watching the jumping box all weekend.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery and to be back on the bike soon.

Glad to see you're keeping it positive.

Mmmmm, blizzards. Now that's what I call a training plan. That reminds me... I think it's time for dessert.
