Thanks for that, much appreciated. Specialist says rest should cure but I am the worst rester in the world and am supposed to be doing Toronto half on 15th October. Maybe 4 weeks with no impact training and then a couple of weeks step up and an easy paced half will get me through or is that wishful thinking?
After 4-5 months of consistent ankle pain I had an MRI scan and was diagnosed as suffering a bone marrow edema of an area around the Talus bone. Does anyone know any thing more about this injury and the treatment regime?
Tore mine badly yesterday, 30 minutes into a 60 min run. It was a long, painful, slow trot back and has been very painful since. At least the next race isnt until 11/09 and by reading through these threads at least I know what I have to do (Rest, Ice, Massage, ultrasound and more rest). I can cope with most of that but am not very good at the resting bit and hate missing any of the three per week runs!!!!!
