All I can say is I'm relieved our trek on the Camino is over three months away because that will give me plenty of time to lose this footwear. This new boot has better grip than my last one, perfect for an invitation to join friends for a day on the water.
I know, I know, all you long term readers of this blog have that look of incredulity as you realize what this means. I have gone for a matched set of ankle fractures. This time is more convenient, however, being on my left non-driving side.
I'm as dumbfounded as you, embarrassed even. How am I going to show my face at work with yet another encased leg? Especially considering the way it happened. Not a hiking/geocaching accident for a change. I would have been safer hiking as I'm extra careful, considering my previous misfortune, wearing a brace and using hiking poles. Nope, this time was walking on a sidewalk of paving bricks, rolling my ankle over the side of a brick one way, and the rest of me going the other, landing quite disgracefully on my side. I knew instantly it was broken, having felt the telltale snap.
Camino training has come to a standstill, so to speak. It's a good thing it happened now, because my Camino will require extra precautions with the security of braces on both ankles.
