After 3 weeks of hobbling about (and suffering from a terrible case of FOMO), my foot has finally healed enough for me to start running again! Woohoo
There I was chasing the ball down in full glory on Saturday afternoon. In my mind, all that the opposition saw was my yellow scrum-cap going past like a bolt of lightning. In reality, everyone else was just tired and kind of over the game while I was the only fool sprinting after another poor clearance.
There are times when the bounce of the rugby ball can be unkind. This was my turn to find out, as it ricocheted backwards off the surface. I tried to stop and chase after it, when suddenly I felt a sharp pain and a crunching feeling coming from my ankle.
