So I've been training for this half marathon coming up in May. I've been clocking the miles and I thought I was doing quite well until last week. My Right ankle normally "clicks" when I walk down the steps in the morning and has lately been quite painful. To fix this I take a few motrin and continue with my life. The last 2 days it hasn't worked. I did 4 miles on Wednesday and it hasn't been right since. Any wight bearing causes some severe pain. I am not one to go to a doctor but this morning I decided it was high time. I made my appointment and off I went.
The took X-rays and decided it was either tendonitis or a stress fracture. Treatment is the same. Stop running, ice, elevation & Motrin. This also means a boot. UUGGHH. I started my half marathon 2 weeks sooner than I HAD to to give myself time to adjust and this injury is putting me back 2 weeks. With my fingers crossed I may still be able to run in May.... fingers crossed.
