not a happy bunny

Well, here's the latest news ...

Went for another run/walk on Saturday afternoon.  And on Sunday too and the right ankle was painful both times.  On a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is almost no pain and 10 is unbearable - walking is almost zero and running was about 7 or 8.  The difference was incredible.

The injury obviously hasn't healed so I'm going to see a couple of specialists at Leeds General Infirmary tomorrow (including a musculo-skeletal guy who happens to a be a runner).  We will get to the bottom of this.

So ... lots of tests tomorrow.  CT scan, blood, balance, X ray, etc

I'm still doing lots of strength work, cycling and stretching for the moment.  I'm not sure if that's helping or hindering but I feel better for doing it.  Again I'll know more in a few days time.

I know I'm not in the same league, but I'm getting severe lower leg pain when I try to run; and I've had it for a few weeks now.
Annoyingly it's my good leg, and I can't pinpoint when/why it might have happened.
Good luck at the hospital.
