I was having pain in my lower back extending down my left leg and one time when I was out running my leg felt numb and I had to stop running. I went for a sports massage and he said that my muscles were so tight that they couldn't stretch when I was running hence the pain. This may be related to the previous ankle injury. The massage was very sore at the time but well worth it and I will definetely be having regular massages!
I also hurt my ankle whilst doing the Womens 10k in Glasgow May 18th, crossing from road to pavement to avoid the walkers! I didn't exercise for a few weeks then started going to the gym (not the treadmill) and on my bike. As it was still tender, I went to see a physio who advised various exercises although it is still tender at times. I am keen to start running again for a 10k in September, what is the best thing to do. I obviously don't want to aggravate it anymore. Thanks
