I severely rolled and sprained my ankle this weekend. I don't want to take time off from late night runs and my routine.

I'm wondering if there is anything I can do (or should do). Taking time off for me is generally not a good idea because getting back into the routine is difficult, at least for it me is.

It is healing at a decent rate, I can put shoes and socks on by myself now. I have access to a pool (was thinking of doing laps until I feel the ankle is ready for jogging once again).

Anyways, I would like the input from the people at F&N. Thanks in advance.

What do you suggest I do so I don't fall out of the cycle I have going on right now.

that sucks, man. i rolled my ankle pretty bad end of last year. i've only regained full balance, flexability and strength a couple of weeks ago so my rehab was probably fail. R.I.C.E for the first few days then i alternated ice and heat. took ibuprofen only when i really needed it. the second half of this yeah i did a lot of single leg work (single leg DLs, pistols, step ups etc) and i'm gonna guess they helped. i do a lot of ankle mobility and knee stability work now and hopefully it'll prevent future injuries.

swimming is a great idea, also you can do pushups, pullups, dips, etc. just keep your weight off the ankle and make sure that it doesn't hurt and you'll be fine.

I would not be running on it, the pool sounds like a good idea for keeping active while injured...gotta let it heal though, don't rush it.
