It's now been nine days since it happened and while the swelling has diminished, as well as the swelling there is still pain. Ugh. At least this pain is relegated to the area around the bone on the outside of the ankle and a bit up the leg. I think this is probably the area that was actually injured.
I read that a Grade 1 sprain can take 5-14 days to heal and a Grade 2 sprain can take 4-6 weeks to heal. Since I didn't go to a doctor, I'm not sure which of the two it is. It's possible it's a Grade 2, but let's hope it's just a Grade 1 and by this time next week I'm able to run again.
