From the get go of this programme my left lower leg has always been the one to “feel the burn” more than the right. As it turns out (thank you gait analysis), I overpronate on both sides but substantially more on the left hand side.
It seems since i’ve started the longer runs this may be properly effecting me. After W6R3 there was some slight soreness to my left ankle but nothing too huge. I did W7R1 this morning and since then every step I take is accompanied by the slightest of twinges and i’m getting the occasional throbbing sensation (no swelling though).
I probably won’t get my new recommended trainers until the end of next week due to finances. After giving myself a few extra days of rest is it too risky to continue using my old trainers until I can get the new ones?
I’ll ice my ankle tonight but any more tips on dealing with this would be amazing too.
