Ankle woes (Read 1070 times)
, 2009, 10:00am
Hey guys and gals,
I'm training for Clinton Lake. I just started...after Farmdale I developed bronchitis and had that for weeks, then I ran a total of 10 miles for one week before coming down with a wicked throat infection that knocked me flat for another couple weeks.
So needless to say, I got in very little running after Farmdale!
I've been back to running (and healthy) for two weeks now. I pretty much had to start all over...I did 6 miles my first week and 10 miles the second. Everything feels great and I'm ready for more!
For some reason since Farmdale I've picked up a nasty habit of periodically kicking myself in my inner right ankle, right below the ankle bone. During the week in between illnesses where I ran 10 miles, I kicked myself very hard on a run and the ankle was quite sore. When I got sick I figured it would get better over those two weeks I was too ill to run.
And it was fine until I kicked myself again in the same spot on a run (but not as hard).
Ugh! Okay...it can feel a little tender on and off when I start running but the pain goes away after a while. It'll come back for a minute if I slip around on loose/slick footing but disappears again eventually.
My biggest issue with this is, it seems the tenderness is more pronounced when I awake in the morning, much like pantar fascitiis but obviously in a different spot. The tenderness is in the same spot where I kick the ankle--below the inner ankle bone but I feel no pain if I press hard on the area so it must be more "inwards".
I've awoken in the night a couple times lately to shift position and noticed my ankles were in a goofy flexed position (I do the same with my wrists) so I bought an ankle brace to keep my ankle straightened out a bit while sleeping.
But...does anyone have any thoughts or advice on this? Or know what it is? The tenderness is never anywhere near making me limp but it is definitely "there" if that makes sense.
