Jake Posted February 20, 2012 Share Posted February 20, 2012 Hey just had a question for those of you that are into jogging/running - what do you do about ankle pain/swelling? I usually do a full body work out 3 times a week (Mon, W and Fri) and my cardio is the stationary bike for 1 mile and the treadmill for 1 mile. On the bike I'm perfectly fine but on the treadmill I'm having huge problems since that obviously puts more pressure on the feet/ankles. I would like to increase my distance on the treadmill but as soon as I get up to jogging speed my feet and especially my ankles just start killing me. Best way I can describe it as a blunt aching pain (and today I just noticed that my ankles swell up too). I have good running shoes, I stretch and I stay hydrated - what gives? The pain is basically preventing me from keeping my heart rate up and running for longer distances. This is extremely frustrating because I'm currently 6'1 and 175lbs and have lost 10 pounds since hitting the gym and changing my diet (been about a month for both). Overall, the issue is I've completely stalled in terms of losing fat around the abdomen and glutes which is where the last of it is holding on for dear life lol! I literally have like 10lbs of fat left and I can't get it off! Link to comment
