I finally got sick enough of this lingering ankle soreness to go to physio to see what I can do to get rid of it.
The diagnosis was what I expected – tendonitis across the ankle. The problem was tightness (as usual). However, this particular muscle is very tough to stretch out.
The treatment is some deep massage and rolling along with icing after running and the usual acupuncture.
I’m hoping this clears things up so I can continue to build up my weekly mileage and maybe take a run at 1,800km for the year.
