I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. This year I started running again after a few years of not running - really enjoying it! I usually do three five-mile runs a week. But after a couple of weeks, I ran and had a really sore right ankle, on the outside of the leg and towards the top of the ankle, for a few days. I rested for 10 days and it felt fine but when I ran again I had the same problem and could feel it during the second half of the run. Then I rested for a week and ran again and had the same problem.
My trainers feel comfortable and I had my gait analysed when I bought them and they said I was neutral. Has anyone had anything similar? Are there any exercises I could do to strengthen that area? Would an ankle support help?
Thanks a lot,
