Anyway, here’s the point. About halfway through my hour-long run on Sunday morning, the back of my ankle really started to hurt. I thought I’d just keeping running, that I’d warm out of it, but it got worse, so bad, in fact, that I had to stop running! No! I felt a sudden sense of distress, like I did back in March of 2011 when I had to stop running due to runner’s knee.
I walked home, took some Ibuprofen and thought, okay, I’ll just take it easy. I skipped my Tuesday run yesterday and used our elliptical trainer, instead, which felt just fine. Then, dummy me, I went to the park today with a group of students and casually threw a Frisbee. Reaching to catch it tossed to me, I tweaked that achilles again.
