I have been having to run 1 - 3 miles three days a week in gym class at school, and I also have tennis practice after school for 2 - 3 hours. So I had developed shin splints for the past month, and a half. They finally went away two weeks ago, but now I was left with pain whenever I pushed my left foot down. I went to the Walk-In this morning, and they diagnosed it as ankle tendinitis. I got out of gym class, but parents still want me to pursue tennis after school. I know tennis is much harder on my ankles that running, because I play more like a counter puncher :?. So.. Here is my dilemma.. I have two tennis meets this week, and a tournament on Saturday. I live in Wisconsin, so the tennis is really cramped into a two month season. My ankle really prohibits my performance in matches. Should I keep practicing or should I take a week break from tennis, and hope for it to heal over the break?!?! P.S. I am have regiment to do from the doctor to treat it, but it doesn't prevent pain. Advil doesn't ever touch it :cry:.
