Have just attempted my 2nd run of week one and it was a disaster. The reason is this (i think) and i could do with some advice on what i should do or try. Here goes:
About 3 yrs ago i was on holiday and walking along the harbour when i stood on a large fishing boat rope and my right ankle turned over. The pain was incredible and i ended up in A&E with a suspected broken ankle which they plastered. An x-ray the following morning showed no break but a bad sprain and lots of soft tissue damage. Since then my ankle has never felt right, is alot weaker than my left one and quite often when im walking it feels like its not where it should be (if that makes sense).
My first run was ok apart from the fact i was conscious of the fact it just didnt feel the same as my left one, i keep looking down at it cos it feels as though its turning under almost, really hard to explain.
So tonight's attempt resulted in a burning sensation through the outside of my lower calf on my right leg only and i couldn't do it, i managed a few 60 second runs but the burning was too much to bear for any longer.
On the way home i stopped at the supermarket and it had been raining and i noticed that only my left leg actually created any splashes on the back of my calf where it was kicking up water, my right calf had no water splashes on it at all as if my foot was working differently.
Should i get it checked again? Is my GP the right place to go?
Thanks in advance!
