I'm not even sure if this is an injury or really what it is. After 2 years out i started running again. After the first few times i ripped my feet apart with the kind of running shoes which are all about cushion and padding etc. I don't really like running in those sorts of shoes anyway, so i went and bought some New Balance minimal padding shoes which are really nice and flexible. I've had no more foot arch injuries since and running is easier in them....however. My ankles are really really stiff. They are fine when i am running, they loosen up after about 20 minutes, and i have been warming up etc. A few hours afterwards though i feel like some kind of rigamortis sets into them and i can't walk properly. I've just woken up and literally had to waddle like a penguin when i got out of bed. It doesn't feel like muscle damage or nerve damage, it just simply feels like my body is too heavy for my ankles, but i'm not overweight at all. Can anybody advise what is going on? Should i start drinking more milk?
