Listen to Dragonchilde. She is 100% right! If stillettos are now part of expected conference dress, I'm glad I'm retired. Oh, the damage they can cause.

DO NOT exercise when you're in pain! Listen carefully to your body. You've clearly injured yourself, and exercising those muscle/tendons is a great way to exacerbate the injury and end up in the emergency room.

RICE the injury, and if it doesn't get better, go see a doctor. And for the love of pete, stop trying to do this fast and furious. :) A few days won't hurt your progress, and jumping in too soon can sideline you for WEEKS, when a little rest would have solved the problem.

I went to a conference this weekend and had to dress up. I wore stilettos (never again) and danced and walked a ton of stairs. Now I am in incredible pain around my ankles (sharp, sharp pain). Should I avoid exercising my ankles and stick to my upper body or should I try to jump back into my normal circuit training? It is hard to even walk and I am limping, but I do want to get back into my normal routine as fast as possible.
