I'm a two-month in runner (from nothing, like I couldn't even run for a bus) and loving it. All good so far.
Except that I appear to have turned my ankle on a run. There's a slight twinge, but it doesn't feel serious, I don't think. I'm resting it for a week and planning to swim instead of run, so I don't make it worse. Which is irritating because I like my running.
But it started me off thinking: how do I diagnose injury; am I doing the right thing; is it just a turn or could it be more serious - and at what stage should one start thinking about seeing a sports physio? And where on earth do you get hold of a sports physio, anyway?
I'm doing the FLM next year, and I want to make sure I look after myself (and that running interruptions are minimised). I may be fussing about nothing, but I'd be so upset if this became more serious.
Any help, guidance from those more experienced much appreciated
