Urgent Care

Filed under: Life — Tags: , , , — Miriam @ 10:05 pm

My husband is an outdoors person. He does ultramarathons, he climbs big cliffs, he does crazy hikes. His body is an important part of his life. He needs his legs in top shape to be happy.

So when he called me to tell me he had rolled his ankle while running. I knew he was concerned. From his description and previous injuries I had incurred I was concerned that he had broken a bone in his foot so I talked him into going to the urgent care clinic.

Most of the afternoon later, he’s only got a serious strain. He’ll be off his feet for at least a week. Which will be torture for him. He’s already registered for the Vermont 50 miler. I don’t think he’s had an injury this problematic since he was a kid. Compared to my multiple sprains, breaks and other injuries in college.

What’s the worst injury you’ve suffered while training for a sport? Did it throw a wrench in race plans?



  1. Poor baby! It fits my theory that exercise is actually bad for you though. 😉

  2. Boo! I hope he heals quickly!

    I don’t know if I’ve ever really injured myself training for a sport… maybe because I don’t do things that intensely.

  3. That sucks. I hope he is better soon. I tore up my ankle my senior year of college right before a big soccer tournament. It took forever to heal.
