I have a 5K in one week, and was clumsy enough to fall down a few stairs yesterday and mildly sprain my ankle (and my pride, but that's a different story!). I perform just about every cardio known to man when I'm in the gym except swimming (no access to a pool), including cycling, jump roping, running, Stairmaster, AMT, etc. I want to continue cardio training in anticipation of my 5K, but don't want to worsen my injury (it's very mild--I can put weight on it, and RICEd it). From some of the forms of cardio I've mentioned, which do you think would exacerbate my injury the least?
