Well, this is a bummer. It seems I've done something to my ankle.
On Thursday as I was finishing up my run, I started to feel a pretty strong pain in my right heel. Luckily it was during the last half mile so I just struggled on home. I spent the rest of the day trying not to walk on it and read everything I could about foot pain.
At first I thought it was heel pain -- so bone spurs and plantar fasciitis were the first things I looked up. No go really and as the day wore on I realized it was more ankle and upper foot related. I took Friday off of running as an extra rest day (this week Saturday was a rest day as well) so this morning I got up and my foot felt okay -- a little sore but i wasn't limping so I headed out. I got about a half mile away from my house when I realized this isn't going to be something that just goes away after two days rest.
I'm sad. But I've got a plan. I've already got the number of a doc who I'll call tomorrow and hopefully get into quickly. A friend also gave me a month's pass at a small gym. I'll stop there on my way home tomorrow because I figure I've got to get on a bike.
Then we'll just see what is wrong. I figure it can't be that bad because I can still walk on it. I just want to make sure I don't make it worse in some way.
Off to hobble through the grocery store so then I can just come home and stay off of it for the rest of the day.
