At the beginning of last year I sprained my ankle pretty severely shortly after I began training by doing an exercise designed to strengthen your ankle of all things. Total klutz. So today in the weight room, as I took my fall over a box I clearly saw sitting there, I once again reaffirmed my clumsiness.
I have no idea if there is something seriously wrong with it. Right now it’s swollen and so of course that makes it hard to do much of anything because it’s stiff and throbbing and all that good stuff, but I hope once the swelling goes away I’ll just be left with a big bruise on my knee, a few scrapes, and not much else.
It’s amazing how when you’re forced to miss a day of practice it seems like the worst form of punishment where any other day practice itself is the punishment. I know that in this sport you are going to have your occasional bumps and bruises, I just hope to God this is one of the minor ones.
