Way back in 2001 I was training for Triathlon.
It was March and I was training for the upcoming UBC Triathlon where I had placed 3rd in my age group the previous year. While out on a training run at lunch (1 week pre race) I sustained a left foot Avulsion Fracture to my Calcaneofibular Ligament. I immediately focussed on rehab. Back then the understanding of rehabbing this type of injury is not what it is today. To say the least, I went against ALL recommendations and continued modified training with the injury. Stationary cycling, swimming without kicking and even rollerblading were part of my rehab regime. Not once did I use RICE and I refused to be immobilized.
