Doing things like heel raises and toe raises during warmup will loosen up that area and also strengthen as a preventative measure.

Also, obviously, ease up on the double unders a little. But I'm sure you probably already knew that
Good points, hope it heals! Sometimes in crossfit we get so excited about learning a new exercise and forget the amount of unusual strain we're giving our bodies in the process. Rest and get back to us if it doesn't improve.
