Nice to hear but take it easy. Keep running to a min, bike instead and do core exercise.

I'll be staying on flat and grassy ground to start with, nice and easy and nothing scary. I'll keep the hard workouts to the bike.

What in toodle's name is a toodle?

one of those runs where you decide where to go with 0 planning beforehand. (Aka not great route planning, 100% yolo)
... Just make it up as you go kinda thang. That's my idea of it anyways :)

I've noticed arch pain while wearing that ankle brace too... Sometimes it's just a matter of adjusting it correctly, but I still haven't figured it out completely. On longer runs/orienteering races it can be really painful actually, so be careful!

Which ankle brace do you have?

Thanks for the heads up Izzy!
And Bash, I have the Psb ankle brace.

That's the one I like best. I had to fiddle with the position of the plastic support to get it to feel comfortable but then I could use it for a long time without discomfort.

Check Youtube to see ways you can tape your ankle when you progress beyond the brace. It is much more comfortable than the brace but your ankle needs to be a little stronger. Your Dad may know how, actually, and I'm pretty sure I've seen Sudden tape his ankle too.

I use that brace too :)
I think you will find your foot gets stiff irrelevant of the ankle brace (at least for me, the foot on the side of my bad ankle is often stiff - possibly it has to work harder to compensate?)
