Pothole Surprise

The surprise being that they can affect runners as much as they can cars. In Wednesday's run, following a back track to avoid the patch of an oncoming vehicle whilst crossing a road, I managed to slip into a pothole and twist my ankle.  

I carried on running and managed to shake off the injury at the time but since then I can feel a bit of tenderness and soreness in the area where I have stretched the tendons in my ankle.  As a result I will not be running again until next week at the earliest so its likely that I will be continuing with the maintenance running theme for another week….better to be safe then sorry though and thinking about it I was lucky not to come away with anything worse!
