Rest it.

Last time I had an ankle problem I kept running on it,but it didn`t heal until I gave it 3 weeks proper rest.

not too bad now thanks. my physio says i'll be able to run twice a week only on sand or grass,one short and one long run, upto race and have to do cycling etc for rest of training. so as well as being paranoid about tendon, am also a lot more worried about completing the race... but hey ho, whats the worse that can happen?

I'm surprised to see that with an achilles injury, you've ben recommended to run on sand. I've always been led to believe that running on sand places the achilles under added strain.:confused:

i was told it was to lessen impact, however your not the first to say this and apparently marine PTI's have stopped running recruits on the sand because there were more injuries. so i dont know...

So Gavs - hope you don't mind me asking but how is the ankle now and how long did you end up resting for etc. I seem to have developed a smiliar injury it happened last Monday - still tender to touch but can walk etc with no problem. Haven't trried running again yet as I'm really not sure what I did in the first place. Would be very interested to here how yours is now.

That was my understanding to Mr p were they specific about the sand type eg soft, hard the sinky stuff I'd be worried about risking more injury on the ripply stuff too . i'm ssure ther are some fancy names for the types of specific sand but you get my drift i hope :embarrassed:

i rested it for 3 weeks.it stopped hurting after a week,but was told to rest it for a couple more. i did a 40 min run on hard sand last sunday, 30 min mid week and an hour and 15 today on grass with no flare up of tendon. i dont know if it was recommended or i assumed but i ran on hard sand. think im going to stick to grass from now on though. need to travel to go on long run now i think, running in circles round fields is doing my head in!
