At mile 6, I tripped on a crab apple. My ankle gave out. The pain was so intense. I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach; the wind was knocked out of me. I cried instantaneously.
After the trip, I walked a bit, got my breathing under control, and ran the remaining 4 miles.
My ankle didn't bother me too much. As soon as I was finished running and I took my shoe off, my ankle started to swell. I ended up going to urgent care. Three x-rays confirmed that I did not have a broken bone, but I did sprain my ankle. I got fitted with an air cast and was given instructions not to run for a week.
It has been five days now with no running.
I know my ankle is healing, but it still needs some more rest.
The chances of me getting my 12 mile run in this week are slim to none.
