lower leg/opposite the shin

running Gma

Recommended Posts

I am a c25k grad. and have one official 5k under my belt...on a workout run this past week in the very cold weather, I finished with some pain in my left lower leg, upper ankle. It's in the spot that would be opposite of my shin. I iced and wrapped tight, then ran a Turkey trot the next morning. Then both legs hurt in the same place. What muscle or tendon is that and how did do that? I have been resting , wrapping and elevating it now. Wandering if it's just cold weather running or cold muscles???

If it feels like it is right in the middle of your calf muscle, it might be your Plantaris tendon. I ruptured mine several years ago. It wouldn't let me put my foot flat on the ground. If you are finding it more painful to have your foot in a dorsiflexion position, that is most likely your culprit.
