After dozens of shorter races and a half marathon, I completed my first full marathon yesterday! I did the Rock'n Roll St. Louis Marathon and I am so proud of myself, but boy am I in a lot of pain today.
Of course, I expected the soreness and the blisters and my knees are sore to the touch, but I'm a little worried about my ankle. (sidenote: I went into the race with pretty back achilles tendonitis and posterior tibialis tnedonitis, if that makes a difference with what's going on) It's not so bad when I'm just sitting down, but I'm getting pretty bad pain on the outside of my ankle when I stand or walk, and especially if I try to rotate my foot. The best way I can describe it is that it feels like and almost crushing, pressure sensation; like the bones in my ankle are compacted. During the race, it was my foot (on the same side that my ankle hurts) more than my ankle that bothered me: I actually thought I had broken it for a while, but pushed through anyway.
Has anyone ever experienced this before?
