A fun trail run and a slightly twisted ankle. Tapering is no longer and option, it's a must!
Running injuries happen every now and then. You can decrease the risk of injury by cross training, proper running from, choosing the right shoes and "quite ironically" trail running.
If an injury happens, remember RICE! Rest, Ice, Compress and elevate. I usually find the first part the hardest.
A twisted ankle is not what you wish for nine days before a marathon. This marathon is just getting harder. But I will still be there and give it my best.
