Emanuel injures ankle on run

Mayor Rahm Emanuel may have to cut back on his intense fitness regimen after hurting his ankle.

"I did my mile swim, I was running, hit the sidewalk wrong, so I'm not going to stand long, so don't take it personally," Emanuel said at the beginning of Friday's budget news conference.

Emanuel is training for a triathlon by running and cycling up to 25 miles on weekends, in addition to his one-mile-a-day swim. The question now is, whether the ankle injury is serious enough to prevent Emanuel from participating in the triathlon.

He did not have any kind of noticeable limp at the news conference.
