I did W6 D1 today after the big 20 minutes on monday. However, today and monday I noticed my shin and ankle becoming really tight and almost feeling like it wasn't moving while running. I took my headphones off and realised I was 'slapping' my feet! I've not noticed this before so must be related to my pain. I did think I perhaps need new trainers (mine aren't that old) but now I think it's perhaps related to my running form. I have been trying to read up on running form but there are many different theories!
I thought perhaps I could join the local running club and see if they can help? I also paused after the runs today to stretch, it helped a bit but the achey tightness pain was still there.
Any suggestions or advice please? I'm going to pop into the local sports shop on saturday but I would prefer not to buy another pair of trainers just yet!
