Skating with an Ankle Sprain

 I did the dumbest thing.  Off ice walking down my stairs I rolled my right ankle.  I caught it in time to stop from falling down but it definitely did some damage to the foot.  I proceeded to the rink anyway thinking the boot will act like a cast and maybe I could skate on it.

Once I got there and removed my shoe I realized flexing the foot really hurt as well as most other movements.  RATS.   Put the dance boots on anyway and gave it a go.

Surprisingly I didn’t fall and I was able to gently do quite a bit of skating for 45 minutes. I was really struggling to use my ankle to rise and fall on the turns or put pressure into the ice.
