Is it the same leg as the one you have been having knee issues with? If it's the other leg I'd wonder if maybe you were subconsciously favoring that leg and putting more stress on the leg with tne sore ankle?
1. You're not old.
2. I just clicked on your blog link out of curiosity and let me just say I'm impressed. 50??? Fifty?? Good lord man you have made some serious progress in a short span. I also like the way you've been extremely constent and intelligent about your training. Keep at it!
3. Whe I run on a treadmill I tend to shorten my stride a bit and land even more forward on my foot than normal. This usually results in *some* soreness in the top of my foot, near the ankle on my left foot. Always the left one for me. This is the same area where I once had a bad case of tendinitis and a stress fracture in high school. I get the same thing when I do speedwork or race, by the way. For me, it's nothing to worry about and just in the category of normal aches and pains from running. I can always manage it with ibuprofen and/or limiting my speedowork. If it doesn't get worse and doesn't affect your running then it's probably nothing to get to concerned about.
Where did you see that I was 50? I'm actually 38.
I'm thinking he's talking about your weight loss, not your age. And the weight loss is indeed impressive.
So's your goal. Boston, huh? You don't mess around.
Just a thought, but if the Dreadmill doesn't agree with you, does the hotel have an exercise bike you could use instead temporarily?
I'm using the treadmill at the hotel.
