peroneal insertional tendonitis
so, i have a judo tournament coming up on sept 23, and my usual routine is to add some running, and other extra workouts to get ready for the additional stress of competition.
on sunday, went for my first run, an easy paced 3 miles, and came home, worked at my desk for a couple of hours and got up to go meet my wife for dinner to discover a great deal of foot an ankle pain in the area shown by this image, leading me to think that it is peroneal insertional tendonitis:
so all day monday i was in pain, i had an appointment with a massage therapist anyway, so i went and she did a lot of work on my leg, and said i needed to stretch it and rest up.
so no judo for a few days, and i'm going to find a different way to get my cardio in for the immediate future, cause i can't risk this happening again close to a tournament.
i was running in vibram five fingers shoes, and that may have contributed to the issue, but i used them for a 6-8 weeks previously on much harder runs without any issues, so i'm not sure. if i do run anytime soon, it will be with normal padded running shoes, and i think i will hire a running coach to correct my stride.
