Lower leg/Ankle injury
Hi SnailRunner. I expect you have sorted this by now, but I've been experiencing a similar pain on my inner ankle. I'm a light runner, but do over-pronate extensively and have pancake feet. I sprained my ankle back in December, but it was fine for about a month before pain started. I wear othotics and motion control shoes. Just wondered what you did to sort yours?
I am relatively new to running and done a 5k event over the last couple of years.
This year i decided to up it and entered for a half marathon
Run three times a week and got up to 20k distance but two weeks later got injured very similar to how you describe yours.
Five weeks rest and still not gone away !
Did you sort your injury out and have you any advice ?
sorry to hear you are injured. Fortunately mine has vanished. A friend of mine who is a sports therapist (and a very good runner) suggested that I ditch my Kayano 15s for neutral shoes. Almost instantly the pain went. It seems that the hard grey bit which helps over pronation caused too much shock to the muscles. Maybe try changing your shoes? Did you sprain your ankle or did the pain just materialise?
