After thinking about it, maybe a rowing erg would be a good way to get some light aerobic work in while giving my ankle a break from weight bearing exercise?
Tapering with an injury
I just finished my last week of training for climbing Rainier next week. During the last hour or two of my final workout I developed some pain in the front of my left ankle. It didn’t seem that bad until the final descent when it became pretty consistent. I can walk on it just fine right now but it gets sore after a few minutes. I’m assuming it’s a tendon and I know the best thing to do for that is to stay off it.
I’m just curious what the best approach going forward would be. I was planning on doing a few light jogs/walks and maybe an easy hike over the weekend for my taper period. Should I just plan on not doing any of that to give it the best chance to heal before my trip next week or just play it by ear and use it if it feels better?
I’m not on my feet all day at work but I can have days where I’ll get a few miles in wandering around for what it’s worth.
