Arrgh! I’m as bummed as I am injured. Hurt my right foot playing volleyball last night. Same injury as a few months ago. Went up for a block, came down on the hitter’s foot, rolled my ankle to the right and heard “snap, crackle, pop”.

I was wearing an elastic ankle support, that I’ve been wearing since I started playing again, and I think that helped a lot. I also iced it immediately. Last time I played another half-game on it, which was really dumb.

The way my foot looks, I suspect I’ll be back on crutches and off volleyball for a while. On the plus side, my guitar will probably improve quite a bit. My employer will get more hours of work for the same price, as I won’t be taking off early to hit the courts. What sucks is that I just love playing and it’s an important outlet for me. Losing that for a while bites.

It’s impractical for me to injuring myself this same way. Maybe I’ll become a setter when I start playing again. Finger injuries seem much more manageable.
