It was near the end of my 30km long run this week... I was paying attention to traffic rather than where I was going, and my foot slipped off the side of the sidewalk.
Immediate flare of pain in my ankle. I kept running, and it seemed OK. In the following days, I noticed it now and then, but seemed pretty trivial (and us runners are used to trivial aches and pains!)
Went out to do a 20km marathon pace run yesterday, and I didn't make it more than 500m before I had to turn back... @#$%!
NYC Marathon is 4 weeks away. Next week is supposed to be my biggest training week, with my last 32km run.
The only good news in all of this is that I can bike fine, no pain, so at least I can do my cross training while I patiently wait for this thing to heal. Some people do a 4 week taper, but it's a tapering off - not running is not tapering!
