Well I had my doctor's visit today and he said that I should keep doing what I am doing. If I can tolerate the run, then run. He gave me more stretching exercises and says it should go away in a couple of weeks at the most. No restrictions, it is just tendinitis. Xrays all look great and the tendon is not thick or swollen. He said that I should take Aleve on running days and that is will go away.
I feel better now that a doctor has checked it out, I just want it gone. I was getting a bit cranky not being able to run. I didn't feel like I was experimenting, I had a pretty good idea that is was in fact tendinitis and I was right.
He also said right now try to run on level surfaces for awhile since I told him about the road being banked on my last half. I was not the only one having a problem with this route that day. It is a beautiful route but I doubt that I would do that race again.
I am going to take it easy and still go pretty slow but I am hoping to push through.

During your taper is not the time to start experimenting with therapy! Good that you're seeing a doctor. You want to rule out tears, heel spurs, etc., before resorting to anecdotal stories that may or may not have anything to do with your issues. Let us know what the doc says.

Don't know if anyone has had any experience with it. My problem seems to come and go. I am not sure exactly when it started, but it was sometime over winter. The first time I remember feeling any tenderness was either x-c skiing or hiking. I felt my boot bothering me on two occasions but I don't remember which came first. I really thought it was the boots. Last month I started feeling it while I was running long miles so I started to try and take it easy. I was training for a half and so I took advantage of the taper time (sort of) and started icing, rolling and massage. It was feeling better by the day of the half. The first half seemed to go great but coming back the road had an awful slant and my ankle did not like that at all. I ended up walking a lot more then usual. I finished but I am not very happy about it. I have another half at the end of June. I hope to rest the ankle and cross train (mostly bike) to keep in shape. Also calling a doctor this morning just in case.
Looking for any suggestions or experiences from the group.
