After realizing how horrible my cardiovascular endurance was, I started doing the Couch to 5K
I'm up to week 4 and I've having problems with sore ankles that's keeping me back.
When I run for more than a few minutes, both of my ankles are severely sore to the point that I can't continue running. If I rest for a minute or so, the soreness goes away and I can run again for at least two minutes before it hurts the point of stopping again. There's no particular part of my ankles that hurt, it's pretty uniform and it's definitely more soreness than true pain. When I'm done running, my ankles feel pretty much OK until I go running again.
I was having some soreness in my calves early on, and recently switched to actual running shoes designed for underpronating arches/feet. (Which mine are.) My calf soreness is completely gone now. I run outdoors on a rubber track, temperatures are between 20 and 35 F this time of year.
Any suggestions on this ankle soreness? Do I just need to give it more time or am I doing something wrong? Searching around I see a lot about ankle pain that persists after running, but nothing much about the soreness I'm having.
