In brief: I would

Wear an ankle brace.
Therapy is not a bad idea but i'd see a doc first to assess for damage. Ligament sprain vs possible other pathology.

In brief: Ankle sprains

Can take longer to heal than bone and 4 weeks for a sprain is to soon to start running.
Need examination to see if its healed and therapy would help if it is.
