Sorry, I haven't been on here much over the last week or so but I was doing some training for work and found that it was completely exhausting me. But I am happy to report that I was able to keep my running up thanks to the gym at work.
Anyhow I have been feeling great about my running until this last Thursday. My run on the treadmill went great and so did the rest of the day. At 8pm that night I took to a pain in my left ankle (on the inside of the left ankle). So I iced it and kept it elevated hoping that would do the trick.
Unfortunately, it didn't. The next morning it even hurt to go up and down stairs and at certain angles I get shooting pain right up into my toes. So, I spent Friday and Saturday night icing, compressing, and elevating it to no end. It still hurt pretty bad on Sunday morning but I thought it would be the real test if I could run or not.
So I headed out yesterday morning full prepared to come crawling home but at the first 10 sec on my run where I limped my body fell into rhythm and I was able to do my 2 minutes of running and I did it 7 times. The real pain came when I started to walk and by last night the pain was indescribable.
Here I am Monday morning with the day off and I am contemplating as to whether I should go have my ankle looked at. It still hurts to walk and going up and down stairs is like doing it on glass but I just don't know if I should be taking this pain very seriously or if I should just keep resting and icing it.
What do you suggest?
