So I was surprised when I looked down at the outside of my ankle the other day and saw this massive bruise. I've twisted my ankle a lot in my day, and I don't think I've ever gotten a bruise out of it. Or maybe I always do and I just never noticed it. I don't look at the outside of my ankle all that often. Regardless, it looks gross. But like I say, it doesn't hurt or anything, and it does appear to be fading, so I'm not particularly concerned about it. I'm keeping an eye on it though.
The funny thing about it is that the day before I'd taken a five and a half mile walk -- given my normal stride, about 13,500 steps -- and never so much as stumbled. Then the next day I walked less than a mile in toto and twisted my ankle as badly as I ever remember. Maybe it was weaker than usual from all the walking the day before weakened it.
