Track freaking blows. I don't see y anyone would want to run a damn race. All you do is make left turns untill the race is over. Whats the point in that. Learn to play a real mans sport like Tennis }:-)

You guys are both wrong, Golf is where it's at ;-)

If I had to choose between them though I'd say Track. I ran when I was in MS and was a fairly decent 400-800 runner. It also helped me out in my other sports ;-D

It basically depends on what type of fracture it is (yes there are different types). Regardless, it isn't the end of your track career, no way. But like the others have said, for now you need to try and keep the pressure off it until you get an X-ray. It is possible that it isn't a fracture, just soft tissue damage.

Whatever the verdict, if you wanna recover as quick as possible I'd suggest getting treatment like accupuncture on it to improve the circulation to the area, and help its recovery. The extremeties are naturally the hardest parts to recover from injury because of the lack of circulation. If you are diabetic, then you definately need to have some accupuncture on it.

Also, until you can get crutches, use some strapping tape, and strap your ankle tightly in place, that way you arent putting any pressure laterally on anything that might be damaged or inflamed.

Is that what that's called? My arm used to do the same thing after every pitch...never knew the name. Thanks ;-D

Same here. ;-D

If you really don't want to do that, have you thought of trying another drugstore for a brace? Worst case, wrap it in an Ace bandage. Any support at all would be beneficial. :-)

Here's hoping it's just a mild sprain and will heal quickly. ;-D

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement." - Steve Prefontaine

There are so many reasons.

You can lose yourself in your workout. Where there's nothing else but you and the track or you and the trail. Stillness. Focus. Somehow disconnection from the world around you and somehow the most connected you've ever been to things. Release.

Major stress relief. It's great for the body and mind. I like the shape that I'm in when I'm in shape from running.

Pushing and accomplishing that extra mile. Shaving those seconds off your time.

It's kind of addictive. It's kinda like a drug sometimes.

Definitely. ;-D I never ran competetively in school or anything, but I run now and I completely agree with everything soop said. ;-D

As for the injury, I have no idea. I've been fortunate (lucky) enough to have never had a serious injury (sprain, broken bone, knock on wood) but I would think that getting into see an expert ASAP at any cost would be the only way to go, but that's just me. :-?

As the doctors have told me, it's a dislocation only if it stays out of the socket. It's a subluxation if it goes partially or completely out and then goes back in on its own.

Do you still have the problem?

I agree that's what I would have done. Don't wait and let these things start to heal on their own. As for driving, you're young so it might be tougher but you can always drive with your left foot for a while.

Best of luck. ;-D

Lol, soop, you're nuts. :-D

Good luck, DaQ. I doubt it means the end of your career. I've broken my ankle twice and it tightens up at strange times, but it hasn't really stopped me completely from doing things. You might have to tape it up a little more, though, to prevent future injuries.

I miss football. :,-( :,-( :,-( :,-( :,-( :,-( Blocking a bigger guy is like a freaking drug.
