I broke my ankle 17 weeks ago - a spiral fracture of the fibula. I had a
plate put in. I was in a hard cast for three weeks, a soft cast for two
weeks and began biking three weeks later. After another five weeks (a
total of 13 weeks) I was given the ok to begin running. My problem is
that I am finding it very difficult to run. The pain is not in my ankle
but in the area of my heel and the muscles above my knee. I need some
guidance for exercises to strengthen my leg and ankle and some general
suggestions about getting back to running. Can someone help?
