Question for Dr. Hive...running after an ankle sprain

Recommended Posts

How do you know when it's been long enough and how much to push it? I sprained my ankle hiking a month ago and it hasn't been hurting. I started going without my wrap last week and it's been ok. Today I tried running. I did wear my wrap. My stride was just awkward. I had to heel strike on that side because it hurt a little to have that bend in my foot that a normal stride has. So I had this weird, gimpy thing happening. I only did 1 minute intervals and quit when it got sore...maybe 6 intervals.


Is that pretty appropriate? Too much? Too little? Should I keep doing that or should I wait a couple more weeks and just cycle in the meantime?
