Braced for Slioch

Filed under: Running,Walking — admin @ 10:44 pm

So another visit to the doc today sets up tonight’s pithy Facebook response to last week’s Fisherfield piece:

Backslab off, brace on… Slioch *on*! :-)

Now of course things are a bit strange and stiff after 10 days in a cast, but Chris seemed pleased with my range of movement, stability and walking demos. And I’ve got a fortnight to get sorted for a single Munro when the untreated ankle survived five Munros and a Corbett the day after demonstrating a degree of ‘flexibility’ I didn’t know it had, so think that’s a pretty green light!


  1. And my funny photo! :-P

  2. Took the brace off today because the ankle’s been quite stable since the backslab came off and I’m walking pretty well normally now. But, still mindful of the potential to spoil things by turning it again while healing, I’ve ordered the lighter, slimmer model for Slioch… this is the Aircast A60 which Andy Murray wears (as opposed to the Aircast Airsport you see above) and should fit more sweetly into the shoes I’m not yet wearing again.
