I appreciate this is not a Doctors surgery and if they hurt all the time I’d get medical advice but I’m just wondering if any of you have had ankle pain from new trainers?
Last Monday I went to the local running shop, had my gait analysis and purchased new trainers as advised by the staff... you may have seen my beautiful Ghosts 😍
Today was my third run in them, I’ve been taking it steady, 3.7k Wednesday and 5K Saturday on both runs the front of my ankle ached a little, but I put it down to needing to break in my new lovelies.
Today my run was unbearable 😕 nothing but the trainers has changed, I did the same warm up, route, socks etc after 1.5k I had to stop and walk. I thought that they might be that I tied my laces too tight so loosened them. Walked about 0.5k and tried again, same happened but then I started to get pain in my right calf and inside my right thigh... this hasn’t happened before 😕 I walked 1.5 miles to work this morning and the were fine, it wasn’t till I started to run that I was in pain.
I could have cried with the pain and more so the disappointment. I walked the rest of the way home. Now I have taken them off the leg pain has gone but the front of my ankle is still a bit sore, going to soak in a hot bath 🛀 it usually works.
I want to keep running so I’m thinking that I should just take them back and talk to the men in the shop that sold them to me, but worried they will just fob me off ☹️ if it is the trainers then they should take them back as they are not fit for purpose..?🤔
Im going to do some googling but any advice / your experiences is much appreciated.
