Simo’s Training Log – Trying Not to Be a ‘Fat Dad’


#1382

Rolled my ankle at work today. I was walking along not really paying attention and stepped half path half off it where the garden bed is. As my weight transferred my ankle gave way and I went arse over tit. It’s an ankle that I broke many years ago and that now has no stability. I roll it pretty much every year. Bloody hurt and I hit the ground pretty hard too. Bounced up like I was ok but inside I was crying lol !!! Iced it at work and there is no major swelling so hopefully will be ok.


#1383

RICE it mate
Rest, ice, compression and elevate
Speed recovery simo


#1384

Damn man, hopefully it heals up soon

What now?


#1385

It means to fall over, usually involving you rear end being higher than your chest !!


#1386

Yer i got ice on it at work abs have, iced and elevated it tonight. This happens to me a LOT so pretty used to it and it’s rarely more than a day recovery. My ego however after they share the cctv footage around at work May take longer to recover !!


#1387

Can’t imagine why they didn’t teach that in high school English classes


#1388

I think “head over heels” is a bit more common.

Nowadays people around here use the phrase “ate shit”.

“I stepped off the sidewalk, rolled my ankle and ate shit.”

Everyone would understand that you fell.


#1389

Simo went “ass over teakettle”! Hopefully it’s a quick recovery.

Since you were at work, I’m assuming you weren’t “three sheets to the wind”?


#1390

Where I come from that would conjure up an image of something more insanitary!!


#1391

No. Sober as a judge mate


#1392

Woke at 87.3kg this morning, pleased to see 87 three days is a row. Now to hit 88.


#1393

You can do it Simo!
Especially while being on light duties for a few days. Good luck with the glass ankle big fella.


#1394

Hope you’ll recover quickly mate.
Can we see the CCTV footage ?
Please … we need a laugh around here.


#1395

I will see if I can save it !!


#1396

Just for you @mortdk

#1397

I would say I hope you get better with the ankle but your not here for the spiders. So…the grind goes on!


#1398

Hurts like fk today but it’s still deadlifts tomorrow. Won’t be going on any trampolines for a while though :wink:


#1399

:joy: That was brutal! I think mine was worse a few weeks ago (not to be Tommy Topper).

I was heading down the stairs in the dark carrying my duty belt and not wearing any shoes
I thought I had one step remaining but it was two. I landed on the outside of my foot with all my weight (and the duty belt) from a bit a free fall.

I’ve learned to just fall down as fast as possible to minimize the damage.


#1400

Looks like you almost took your head off too.


#1401

As you well know, when it goes it’s like someone pulled your leg away. It doesn’t matter what you do you are going down hard. I am glad mine wasn’t worse that yours :slight_smile: , how is yours healing up?
