I am new to running, have been mostly running on trails behind my house. Before Christmas I had been running for a few weeks with no problems but twisted my ankle fairly badly. There was no good reason why it happened i was just running along on fairly flat ground. Got an x-ray and was told no bones broken, rest it for 4 weeks. I rested it for 5 weeks and it felt perfectly normal again so went out running last night and exactly the same thing happened. Running on a fairly flat trail and went over on the same ankle in the same way. The damage wasn't as bad as before but it seemed to be the same part of my foot that was damaged.
Obviously my ankle was weaker than i thought but my question is how do i know when i can start running again and is there anything i can do to try and stop it happening again?
