One of the things I love about doing these Fat Ass Events is meeting new people. I am now going to run the Grand Canyon because I saw Sherpa John's post and responded. Crazy how life unfolds from the tiniest of decisions. And the two Fat Ass events I participated in turned out to be highlights in my winter training. Both gave me great training heading into the Spring (lots of miles and lots of vertical gain). I will definitely continue to do more events this Spring.
I'd be lying if I said my ankle is 100%, but I am able to keep training at this point, and that is a start. Caution is still the name of the game moving forward. I will continue to take extra rest after hard/long workouts. And I continue to do PT and contrast therapy. What's more, I plan to increase my strength training and x-training to try and balance out my body a bit. The good news is that I twisted/rolled my ankle a few times on my Saturday long run and it responded fine. One day at a time still.
