I am a 53 yr old guy. I play regular tennis & golf and have been doing Pilates for a couple of yrs so I am relatively fit. I am 5'8" and 11 stone so not overweight. I decided to do C25K to get some more aerobic exercise and get properly fit. I did W1R1 on Monday evening. I really enjoyed it and actually found it very easy - no pain and not out of breath.
That was Monday... Tuesday my left ankle started to ache both at the front and up the outer side. This is something I have had occasionally after tennis or golf but it usually goes away after I start moving around. This time it took all day to subside and walking the dog in the evening set it off again. Right ankle not much better.
I thought it might be down to my footwear (an old pair of tennis shoes) or a dodgy gait, or both so I went to SweatShop today and had a full gait analysis done (fascinating but not pretty) and ultimately bought a pair of 'stability' shoes in the sale to rectify my 'normal' but seemingly weak ankles.
My question is this. How long should I now leave it before I do W1R2 in my shiny new trainers? I want to get on with C25K now that I have started but I dont want to cripple myself...
