Some of my tendons are aching, were my foot meets my leg, but on top. It aches more today that it did yesterday, and I was wondering (since today is my workout day), should I wait to workout until my joint feels better, or do you think it's okay to work out with it?

Everything I can think of, I'd have to use that joint. I've been stretching it since it started, which was two days ago, but this hasnt ever happened since I've been active. Usually I'd just rest it out.

Suggestions?

Don't work it out today. Can you do some exercises that don't use the sore spots? If you work out while you are sore, it might get worse and then you won't be able to work out at all.

You could try something really low-impact/low-intensity -- walking maybe? Or if even that hurts, maybe you could just work out your upper body.

Hope it feels better soon!

i wouldn't do anything that will aggravate it more.

it will probably only make it worse. =)

Thanks guys! I think the soreness is going away little by little. I've been stretching it out. I posted this when I first woke up and it really hurt then. I think I'm going to call my mom to see what she thinks too.

You may be aggravating it by stretching too much.
Try something light - swimming? biking?
or, do some weights.
I hope your foot feels better soon.

I decided against it today, but I'm sure I'll feel much better by tomorrow. Thanks everybody!
