I'm fairly new too running. I have had my gait checked and have brooks gts 12 as I over pronate!!! I have run regularly 6miles but recently enroled in my first marathon. Too quickly i know i was running 10mile with half marathon along side with not enough rest!!
I now have a right ankle that's sore as hell. I have not run for two weeks i have swam and used a excercise bike as i don't want to go backwards with my training too much as the marathon is in November!!! I still however have this soreness. I have iced it and done strengthening exercises but still the ankle /arch of my foot aches. It tends too be worse in the morning and lossens off in the day however no shoes or trainers seem to feel comfortable. I have no swelling or tenderness just this constant ache.
I have booked to see a physio as i'm sooo missing feeling fresh and ready too run. Any ideas or advice would be brilliant.....Thanks
There's one thing that's quite easy to do yourself which might just solve the problem, so I'd give it a try if I were you. Often pain seems to come from one place but there is actually somewhere else that could be the problem. I'd try, after a hot bath would be even better, pressing all round muscles on my lower leg to see if there's anywhere that's sore when pressed. If so, pressing round that part of that muscle for maybe a minute might release tension/pain elsewhere.
I still get twinges when I run and have recently moved up to 3 miles and the pain seems to be returning again.
thanks for the replies people its really nice to hear others views. I have seen two physios now and boths ay different stuff. I have done one run in six weeks still have pain and my foot feels week. Problem is now i am frieghtened to run in fear of making it worse. I'm doing everything from stretches to ice but nothing has really made a massive impact. I have had a week of total rest and this too has not helped... 'm frustrated and want to get back to just my regular 6miles...... I have starttyed pilates in attempts to strengthen my core too and hit the swimming pool just to miantain fitness. I am lost and the next visit will be the doctor but i have little faith in that avenue either to be honest!!!
I'll keep you posted on any developments and welcome any advice!!!! Thanks everyone
