I was hoping for some advice on an awful pain ive been getting in my legs whilst running-
Im new to running (doing the c25k) and have just managed the 25 minute runs twice now but have had to overcome the most terrible pain in my left shin/ankle during the run, which gets worse for about 5 minutes after the run but settles down to absolutely nothing otherwise.
Its in a muscle on my left leg, just on the left hand side of my shin bone, starts about 2 or 3 inches above the bend of my ankle and finishes about 4 inches higher. Its been a little swollen or just enlarged after running. This is a muscular pain rather than any kind of injury, but id very much like peoples advice on how to get it better!! As I said it doesn’t hurt other than when/just after im running, but its making my improvement very difficult! Ive been doing my best to stretch it well before running although its a fairly difficult muscle to get at.
Thanks in advance!!
