Yesterday did the bike again. About 30 minutes worth. Really wanted to run, but resisted. Ankle still has a little bruising and very slight swelling. No were near as tender, still stiff. Self massage of the area last couple of days.
Ran this morning. Started off with a slow shuffle, no discomfort. Planned on going around 3 miles or 30 minutes whichever came first. At 1.5 miles I was feeling pretty good. Decided 4 miles would be plenty. Ankle felt pretty good, no discomfort, just a lack of flexibility.
Exactly a week today from ankle roll and sprain to back running. Four days off completely with no running and two days of bike. Ice afterwards as a precaution. Did I come back to quick? I don't think so. The best rehab for a sprained ankle seems to be using it. Should I have stayed off it longer? Time will tell, but I think doctors tend to be overly cautious.
