One problem though... Monday night I went running, a part of my keep fit routine in my new trainers which went well for the first 50 metres. It had been raining outside and like I said new trainers, next thing I know I tripped and went flying. I hobbled home put my foot up and after that couldn't put it back down. We phoned NHS Direct (telephone and e-health information services) to see what they say. The response "You should goto A&E(Accident and Emergencies or ER)". I thought I'd rest it for the night which didn't solve anything so this morning I headed to the hospital. After and examination and x-ray the conclusion was I have quite a serious sprained the ankle but have done no damage to the bone. The result, I'm on crutches for a week and need to rest. Hopefully by the time I head north to Scotch I should just be a hobbling mess without the supports.
