stiffness at back of ankles
An_246510 posted:
I started doing step again after about 10 years. It was going fine for about 2 months when my ankles/feet started to swell and the backs of my ankles have become very sore...feels like the tendon(or what ever is there) is very very tight. Difficult to walk in the AM gets better as i move more. I took a week off and it did get better. I have new shoes...that did not seem to help as the symptoms are back. They are stiff 24/7 can't quit figure out what to do. i do not want to quit doing the exercise i only go twice a week so it is minimal at best. The swelling seemed to have started about the same time as the ankle soreness. Any suggestions are welcome!

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
