So i am having a pain that is really worrying me and i thought i would throw it out there and see if i could figure out what it was.
I completed my first half-marathon April 30th. in the following week i had a lot of tightness in my calves and some dull aching pain in my achilles. i did some light recovery training that week but nothing to severe. On friday of that week i went for a short run and my right achilles was killing me so i stopped, went home, iced it and that pain went away. The next week i skipped my monday run and trained regularly the rest of the week (only run on Friday). On Saturday i completed a 25/3 brick (in prep for an olympic in two weeks) and had no pain at all. so i thought i had it whipped. The next morning i wake up and my LEFT achilles is killing me. I lay off running last week and ice it for a couple of nights and it feels better but still not 100%. another brick this weekend, no problems. a little soreness and ice, but no injury pain. so i go for my monday run this week and BAM...30 minutes into it i can barely walk. this morning i woke up to severe stiffness, some swelling around the joint and severe pain. also a noticable limp. the pain is still in the back achilles near the attachment to the calf but the severe pain is just medial to the mallues on the outside/middle of the ankle joint.
i know that is long but i was wondering if there are any thoughts on possible injuries/if i need to see a doctor/ treatment.
I rode 25 miles this morning and NO PAIN while riding but cant walk for crap.
Thanks for the help!!
