I completed Week 5 Run 1 yesterday and I'm feeling great. Really like the post-run buzz that I get! I do have one concern and that's my ankles. Now and again, one of my feet will twist inwards and I'll land painfully on my ankle, with no prior warning. Sometimes, I can walk it off within a couple of minutes but last summer, the ankle got very swollen and I had to rest it completely for two days. I'm worried about going over on my ankle during a run and I worry that overcompensating for this eventuality may affect my running style. It would be reassuring to know whether other runners have this problem and how they might overcome it. Does anyone have any ankle strengthening tips?
By the way, I did see my GP about this a few months ago, suspecting that the reason I kept going over on my ankle was because I was perhaps flat-footed (I wasn't). Physio could help but I think I'd have to do myself a worse injury to get that sort of attention on the NHS.
