So, I'm taking a week off training after spraining/straining/hurting my ankle this weekend. We went hiking in a state park Saturday and biking for 5 miles or so on Sunday. My right ankle seemed a little sore after biking, but by the time I got home, it was swollen and painful. We encountered plenty of uneven surfaces and hills Saturday, so I assumed I twisted my ankle and didn't really notice it at the time.

I was awfully gimpy at work Monday. Two gimpy (and much older) men shared their woes with me. One hypothesized that a piece of bone had chipped off his second toe on his left foot when he was shoveling snow. I didn't quite understand why this was still a problem since it's been, you know, several weeks since we last had snow, but I didn't ask.

Either way, I'm glad walking didn't bring tears to my eyes today, but I'm going to wait to formally start exercising until Monday just to be safe ...
