I think I sprained my ankle..

I don't remember when. I dont actually know if I did. But I have this weird discomfort on my left leg around the ankle area. I wouldn't call it pain, but it bothers me. Especially when I stand or walk. It's kind of like a sharp pain except it doesn't really hurt. Sounds weird but that is the best way that I can explain it. It started on Wednesday and it didn't hurt when I ran on Thursday. I actually felt good after my run. But today it was bothering me.
Massaging feels great. I was rubbing my foot just about all day at work :) ... I stopped at Walgreens this afternoon and bought an ankle brace:

It feels good on my ankle. Tried to stay off it today as much as possible. I planned on running tomorrow, but will have to see how it feels in the morning. Maybe I'll just do a short and slow 2-3 miles. But I still plan on my long run on Sunday.
Grrr!! This frustrates me! I just signed up for those two half marathons. I keep telling myself "Just hold until next Sunday... I'll rest you after Sunday".... and I will too. For a few days. But then I have to get ready for Springfield on the 28th. I'll be fine.... I hope.

Were you running on an uneven ground back then? Because that’s what most likely caused the sprain. From the looks of it, it seems what you got is a grade I sprain; a type of sprain that doesn’t cause much pain and is curable by rest and cold compress.
