I have got all the way up to w7r4, and I am so so proud of myself. My ankle started hurting a bit in w5, but I powered through, quite painful towards the end of 6, and I had to abandon my w7r1 as my poor puffy ankle was so swollen. Should I go to GP, sports physio or Dr Google? My aim is to participate in a park run during the school summer holidays, but I can barely walk at the moment☹️

Ouch! You poor thing. Sounds like it definitely needs a real life opinion, GP or physio pronto, or minor injuries if you can't walk on it.
Elevation & bag of frozen peas wrapped in a TTowel also helps initially. Once you're back on your feet (literally!) listen to any twinges & don't run through pain. Hope it clears up soon 🤞
