When I was a staff officer in the 82nd Airborne, I "sprained" my ankle during a morning volleyball game but I continued to run each morning's 4-mile run for a couple of weeks before it was clear it wasn't getting better. I went to sick-call and they found I'd broken my ankle. When I came back, my CO saw the cast and asked what was up. After I told him he said, "Captain, I respect your gumption but I question your judgement." As a former resident of Anchorage and Fairbanks, I give you my admiration and my sympathy for your questionable mental health.
