Okay, less than two weeks from the Oakland Marathon. Last night my leg (just above my ankle started hurting). I was not even running. It started getting sore after work. I planned to run 4 miles that night and I did, but I took it slow. It hurt the entire time but not major pain.
Now this morning it continues to be sore and more painful.
I think it is my Peroneal Longus Tendon. I’m quite sure the injury is not too bad – I would not be able to have run last night. Yet, I can’t run 26.2 miles on this so I’m hoping it gets better soon.
I’m worried that initial treatment says to rest it for two to four weeks. I don’t have two to four weeks!
Hopefully, a few days off will do the trick. I might try to go to the doctor, but they will just say to rest it and see if the pain goes away so I guess I might give it a couple of days before going to the doctor.
