So I'm pretty sure I snapped my ankle...

So I'm pretty sure I snapped my ankle...

So on my third round of the day I started off pretty well, birdied the first three holes and tied off on the fourth. I release and on the follow throw my pivot foot came off the pad caught on a rock and rolled under my body with a nice little crack. If it's looking like crap tomorrow I'll go get xrays.

Take care. My doc said that I'll have aches after hard training after ten years from my ankle damage. My advice is to squeeze out a training regimen out the doctor with info about when to start training and how hard and how fast to ramp up the stressing of the exercise.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Yeah I'm about to head to the hospital to get some xrays. If it weren't for the cracking sound I heard I'd probably go buy an aircast and walk it off. Looks like soon I'll be forced into the right pec drill :D
