Ahhhh, so sorry, Chris. I sprained both of my ankles about a year ago and tried everything. I resorted to ibuprofen which I detest taking any meds but a runner at heart gets desperate. I ran anyway on drugs and it took twice as long to heal. I even ran a marathon on them. DUMB! That is how I refuse to give up running. I would not recommend what I did. I truly believe the only thing to heal a sprain is to stay off of it until you can run without pain. I didn't want to have to "start all over again" so I continued to run. Too worried I would lose my love of runnning. I was miserable though and in so much pain.
Anybody have a successful meal plan to nurse an ankle injury?
I went out for my long run yesterday and rolled my ankle bad. I had surgery on this ankle about 10 y.o. due to many soccer injuries. It's all puffed up and gnarley looking, which I'm accustomed to...but not on LFRV. I RICE'd it and took 4 ibuprofen. First 48 hours are key is what my physical therapist friend told me. I don't like taking ibuprofen, but...I'd love alternatives.
Run on Fruit we do have a Jambe Juice nearby. I am thinking of making my last "supper" Friday night a Jamba drink after eating mono fruit in the day. What do I order? A Power Orange Juice? I dont do the yogurty stuff, just pure fruit or juice.
I forgot to mention this 1/2 marathon is 6.5 miles uphill and the other half is back down. I did it last year. Hope I don't get black toenails this time! Last year I did it in just under 2 hours. I beat my full marathon record this year running it in 4:00 so maybe I will do my 1/2 well too.
I do for sure... and I dont run nearly as much as you do!
Every time I get going, I get injured. This time I've been taking it super easy, working with a coach, doing everything I can, and still wound up with something wrong with me. I was super pissed yesterday and wound up saying sorry to the ladies i work with!
It sucks to have all the energy to keep going, but my legs hurt too much :(
Two words as an answer: water + monomeals.
Mono digest quicker than mixed food.
Keep hydrated and it will help the bowel movements. When you wake up drink at least a liter of water and that will result in #2 coming quickly. And obviously for the shorter, early runs skip the breakfast as any food matter getting in will push out whatever there was left in the intestines. For HM or marathon wake up very early so you can drink and eat breakfast at least 2h before.
And the wee thing should not worry you as the pro runners sometimes have the same "problem" but they just do it without stopping :)
Although I'm not 100% raw at the moment (I'm sticking to low fat cooked carbs when I can't get fruit), I find that when I drink a decent amount of water on waking (ie 1.5 litres) then almost without fail I need to do a number 2 within half an hour. That clears me out until the next meal! This predictability happens as long as I eat whole food with all the fibre intact. However, my problem is having to stop for a wee on long runs!
