Do you wear ankle braces?

Nah, I may have one somewhere from the last millennium, but I think they are counter-productive.

How about sports tape?

I think it was Andy Hill that used to use ankle tape, but snapped it most times at O events.

Braces are counter productive up to a point. But if you can’t finish a run otherwise, they are well worth it!

I used strapping tape on it to play ultimate last night, it gave me a bit more confidence, but I usually just get those minor ankle turns and then things settle down during the run. This was the first bad sprain since I broke the same ankle.

I'm sure Ultimate can't be ideal for dodgy ankles with all the stop/start and twisting.

Do I recall correctly that it was you who once did an ankle tripping over a roll of ankle tape on the loungeroom floor, or am I thinking of someone else?

It was me, at the Big Foot action centre I think, which I ran past the other day to see that the landlord we had is still there and looking pretty fit given he must be going on 80.
