Oh, wait . . . no, that’s not so bad actually.
No, the hated thing is having my muscles start to atrophy because I can’t do any workouts or tennis or much of anything related to physical activity which includes my ankle.
I can do some weights routines though . . . yeah, fun.
I’m giving my lame ankle another week to smarten up - then it’s off to the gym again to try and regain that little bit of muscle tone I achieved before damaging myself.
According to the intertubes, (if it’s on there you know it’s true) it takes between four and six weeks to recover from a sprained ankle . . .
I’ve been at this recovery thing now for just over a week and don’t think I can stand not doing active things much longer, let alone for another three to five weeks.
I will go nuts . . . okay, more nuts.
Anyhow, with an actual update, the ankle itself is almost swelling free, but it still gives me aches and pains when I walk on it.
I’m thinking, another week of reading and I should be able to get back to mild treadmill activities with an ankle brace.
But enough about that boring crap.
Yesterday was game day!
We played Defenders of the Realm . . . and, though it looked like we were doing pretty well mid game, the game took a left turn about three quarters of the way through and handed us a sound spanking.
In other words, we lost pretty badly.
Our first attempt to take down one of the four generals was an utter failure - we didn’t even put a dent in his helmet. It was sad really.
The game, despite that setback, went slightly uphill from there, then came the precipice.
The dice hated us, no question. We rolled a statistically unusual amount of ones and twos - not good in this game for sure.
Better luck next time I guess . . . or a different game . . .
Well, I think I’ll go recover some more on the couch and read another book . . . sigh.
Until next Sunday . . .
