In General 13th Practice - Woo hoo!! Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #18 New 10-25-2004 08:25 AM
Yay! I'm finally back in practice after very badly spraining my ankle on July 31st. Yesterday was my first time back on the mat in more than 2.5 months. I'm so happy to be back at it. I was afraid that I would be horribly awkward (more than usual), but I got back to my previous level of newbieness pretty quickly. I was also impressed that I'm not quite as badly out of shape as I was afraid. It was a Sunday class, though, and just an hour - so we'll see how I do on Tuesday night when it's closer to 2 hours.

I have bought myself a super ankle-brace. It's a lace up type made of ballistic nylon that has velcro straps galore. If anyone is interested, I can let you know the brand name. It really holds my foot in place, but allows me to sit seiza (piece of cake) and do rolls and stuff. It worked great. I pretty much only need it now for doing Aikido and if I'm going to walk a few miles. I don't wear it on a day-to-day basis.

I'm just really, really happy that I'm back in practice. I'm going to endeavor not to hurt myself badly again.
