The joy of sprained ankle
I think I am cursed.
Yesterday, I was thrilled to get back to Savate after taking a break due hairline rib fracture from BJJ randori.
The class went fine, rib felt good and I decided to go forward with light sparring. Basically I missed with a fouetté, lost my balance and rolled my right ankle. Funnily enough, it did not feel too painful at all, first. My sparring partner asked if I was ok - I said yeah and just re-laced my savate boot real tight. Rest of the session went without a hitch, even walking home there was almost no discomfort.
So, in the middle of the night I woke up with the ankle swollen and aching like a bastard. I went to my local clinic and was told there´s a moderate sprain. I got crutches, an air brace and anti-inflammatories. Have to take at least two weeks off - this means I´ll miss the rest of BJJ intro class and will end up in the next one.
Blah. Just wanted to vent, really. I suppose things could be worse.
