Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forum. I had the bright idea last year to train for a triathlon mainly to lose weight and get fitter (I got a bit too insprired by the olympics!!). I'm currently making the journey from couch to my first one in April, slowly but surely.
The running bit is my weakest discipline. I'm not a natural runner and have been blessed with flat pancake feet.
I have the right trainers for my over pronation (got some new ones yesterday, wahoo!) but I'm still having problems with what feels like the large ligament on the inside of my ankle while running but only on my left foot. I run towards on coming traffic so the camber of the road is alway running down to my right, not sure if this makes any difference??
Can anyone recommend any exercise I can do to maybe strengthen my weak and wobbly ankles, or anything else to help this please?
Thank you in advance.
I'm a newbie too so I'm sure others can give better advice particularly around strengthening your ankles, but I would just say that yes the camber of the road can make a difference. Try alternating sides, but only if it's safe to do so of course!
Thank you for replying. I had no idea how hard cleaning your teeth on one leg is!
I do actually have a wobble board..............somewhere, so will look it out too.
