Would you run with an ankle support?

Ok thanks guys. Food for thought. It's "just" the four miles tonight so thought this would be the perfect opportunity to test it out.

Di d my 4 this morning. No problem with the ankle and new orthotics gave me no grief, although I still have a Compeed on my foot from Saturday's first run with them fitted.

However, I woke up with a back ache! Really painful and stiff in the lower back. I am prepared to give up on atheism and pray very very hard that this is not a return to the back problems I had years ago.

It went OK thanks. Took it slow, with the support on. Bit of tenderness there this morning but not much at all. I won't be using the support for a long run (10+) as I refuse to believe that thing won't rub at a certain point and cause an issue. May run in it for tomorrow's 7 miler though.

Got something to say?
