Where have you been, you ask? Well, since my race on Sunday, I have had my ankle injury flare up a bit (especially with no rest thanks to work...). I've finally figured out what it is (I think): Posterior Tibial Tendonitis. After research, it pretty much sounds like what I've got. I am no doctor and would never claim to be, but this is my best guess. While I may not actually have tendonitis, the issue is most definitely involving that tendon!
It is really frustrating. I am just getting back into the place I want to be and I get hurt again. This time around, I've been being so careful (though maybe not exactly resting when I know I should...). You know, it is really hard to run when you have a hard enough time walking without your ankle randomly collapsing under you with pain shooting through it. I even bumped it weird in bed in the middle of the night which woke me right up! I think I will see if I can dig out my old ankle brace for work today and worry about actually getting some rest tomorrow, perhaps. We shall see :)
Have a lovely day!
