Ow my… ankle? heel?

My right ankle has been in pain for like 3 days now. I have no idea why. I think it coincides roughly with getting up early to exercise Thursday, since I had been a lazy slacker Wednesday. I pedalled OK Thursday morning but developed pain later that day.

It’s not really my ankle I guess but more my heel and bottom of the achilles tendon. It hurts at certain point in my stride (like when I shift weight to the front of that foot and that tendon is holding my heel up off the ground), stretching it aches a little but not a lot. Putting some heat on helps a bit too, as does a double-dose of aspirin.

Not a big deal, just wanted to note it for my reference. I will probably not work out for a few days.

    If it feels like a ‘scraping’ pain, it could be the tendon sheath is swollen. I have a tendon along the top of my foot that does that when I’ve been walking a lot. The sheath swells and I can literally feel the tendon move through it. Very unpleasant.
