Orienteering (Setting/Collecting) 3:00:00 [2] *** 7.19 mi (25:02 / mi)
shoes: Icebug MR BUGrip

Back to Mt. Airy bright and early to finish putting out controls and SI boxes. Then setting up the registration/start. And picking up everything afterwards. Turn out was quite disappointing. All the effort that went in seem wasted. At least the few folks who did run the courses had a good time. Two more to go in the series. Hopefully attendance improves, or else changes will have to be made...

Orienteering (Setting) 2:00:00 [1] *** 4.09 mi (29:20 / mi)
ahr:114 max:163 shoes: Icebug MR BUGrip

Setting controls at Mt. Airy. Thought I was going to get rained on, but luckily the weather held up. Mostly slow going, so as not to aggrevate the ankle. It was alright walking, and even at slow jog, but all it takes is one wrong step...

Afterwards, had to make an unexpected roundtrip to Hamilton-Oxford to pick up maps. Very tired at the end.

(rest day)

Have been resting the ankle the last few days, hoping it will acclerate the healing. It's getting better, but sadly still nowhere near 100%. One more week to go... ugh!

Went to the Spot's injury clinic and consulted with both a PT and a Podiatrist about the ankle. The diagnosis - tendonitis, probably an inflammation of the tibialis anterior (?) tendon. It may be an overuse injury from all that fast running on hard surface, or I may be becoming an overpronator. The remedy for now is R.I.C.E., NSAIDs, plus some light isometric strength exercises and stretching. Long term, I may need to get better arch support, and even a heel raise.

Looking back at my recent injury history, it appears I had a similar episode at the beginning of '08, on the same foot. The pain was in a slightly different part of the feet, but still diagnosed as tendonitis. That went away in about 4-5 weeks, so hopefully it's about the same this time around.
