Went boarding today and sprained my left leg and ankle area. I was doing like a 70 degrees tail press through the soft stuff till my board slid under me and i bent my back leg. My boots weren't tight enough. I was laying there agonizing in pain and I got up and noticed that it wasn;t painful riding toeside. So I rode down half the mountain riding backward until I couldn;t do it anymore. A skier asked if I was alright and I asked him to call ski patrol. They came down with the toboggan and strapped me in. LOL, so embarrassing. They checked me out and everything and put ice on my leg. I'm home now and my leg hurts like shit. It hurts so damn bad and I can't even move it slightly with out it hurting. I'm just pissed because the snow today was perfect. The snow was powdery and the sky was so blue and sunny without a single cloud out. It was one of those days when you feel so good riding and having fun. Today was my 7th day in a row riding so i guess i needed a break and my leg was already hurting before I got up the mountain. I hope my leg gets better soon.
Get well soon man! Give it some rest, and keep in mind that it will probably be succeptable to happening even easier for the rest of this season. Your ligaments and tendons won't be fully healed until it gets a whole lot of nothing stressing it for a while... I'm riding on half an MCL in my left knee, and it sucks to be cautious, but it's the only way to fully heal.

My leg hurts like fuck. I think I strained my lower leg muscle but is it suppose to be this painful? I can't even move it slightly without feeling pain. I have been icing it and keeping it elevated. I've been scooting around my house on my chair with wheels. I'm starting to think that I got a stress fracture. FUUUUUCKKKKK! I want to ride so bad!!!!! Ibuprofen doesn;t work and i've been putting arnica gel on it. and flippin icy hot patches. been laying off it and the pain won't go away, it's tender as hellll. just wanted to whine lik a bitch. soryry for my crappy english writing skills.
