Pre-Training: Day off

Today is scheduled for another 3 mile run but I'm skipping as I'm having problems with my left ankle. It doesn't seem to want to heal and, at worst, it's tough to walk on. Lots of ice and ibuprofen seem to be helping, but only temporarily. I think if I give it a rest until Monday, I should be fine.

This is bugging me. I can't quite seem to shake the injuries from my left leg. This is different from the knee and hip issues I was having and definitely not the same thing as the calf issues I was having. It's bugging the hell out of me because this leg just won't fucking cooperate. It's tough to run with a limp.

Might be time to get it looked at, sweetie. If you get temporary relief but then additional stress makes it worse, there might be something you'll just aggravate to the point of real damage if you keep running on it without knowing what you're dealing with.

Go get checked out, please?
If several days of rest doesn't take care of the problem, I will. Right now, there's nothing I'm experiencing that's unusual. I've been doing a lot of research about this and I'm reasonably certain that I've not done any permanent damage. It's just annoying me.
My main concern is that you've had two or three fairly minor issues with the same leg... often, when you compensate for an injury, other areas get hurt. I don't want you to find out the hard way that you've exacerabated the original injury and ruin your ability to succeed at something important to you.

And of course, I'm only bugging you because I care. :)
