Rolled my ankle last Sunday at the end of a trail race. It's a little swollen and have applied an ankle support today, as yesterday it was aching. How long should I expect to be laid off running? 2-3 weeks or longer?

Depends how it goes but no reason why you won't be running sooner than that. Start on flat smooth surfaces until the ankle has built up some strength/stability though. Balance cushion is also good (we have one to stand on while brushing teeth). Good luck!

There's rolled, and then there's rolled. If you heard a pop when you went over then take it very easy, but it sounds like you got away with it so like jda says, short easy runs on flat surfaces for a couple of weeks should be OK. Don't push it.

Been quite lucky by the sounds of it - the other kind which Oranj mentions would see your ankle elephant sized and a whole range of interesting colours. Even so, you might find your proprioception (foot-feel) off for a bit, which is why flat surfaces are better.

Got something to say?
