Is my ankle broken? When can I start training again

I've been training like a mad man but now it looks like I have a set back.

I thought I would take a short cut at coachella fest this weekend and jumped over a wall to get to my car quicker. well, safe to say I landed incorrectly.

^my left ankle

^ right ankle

anyone have this happen to them before? how long before you could ride again. i just got new Sidi's but it looks like it might be a while before my fat foot can get in them. I have been walking OK. the first 2 days I could not walk but now (day4) i have been more mobile.

Possibly. Only way to know for sure is to have an X-ray. The bruising is due to all of the blood from the swelling. I'd get an X-ray to know for sure. However, if the swelling is going down and it's getting better you are probably alright. Once again, to be safe I'd check with a doc.

yeah the swelling has gone down dramatically in the last 48 hrs. at first it was a nightmare. these are pics of it like a couple hours ago. the first couple days it was disasterous. much more swelling. now, as in the pics it looks much better

Why are you asking a bunch of people on the internet to diagnose a broken ankle? How the heck is anyone supposed to know if it is broken if you don't get an x-ray or at least an exam?

go to a doctor. dumbest thing you can do is let it heal wrong and then have a ****ed up ankle for the rest of your life.
