My Achilles/soleus/lateral edge of my lower right leg has been achey for quite some time-about 18 months. I'm not exactly sure what hurts, as it seems to move around a bit. I don't remember how it started, but I do know that it was getting better when I rolled my ankle off a curb, which set it back quite a bit.
For about the same duration, I've noticed excess wear on the lateral edge of that shoe, near the pinky toe. It's basically a bald spot that forms about the size of a golfball. After running 3-4 years with lots of shoes, I had never had this wear pattern until this injury showed up.
Here are the questions:
-Do you think these are related? Seems rather likely.
-Is this wear pattern potentially caused by supination?
-If it is supination, could it be causing my leg issues?
-If we think these are related, is there a logical solution?
If anyone has any thoughts or ideas, let me know. Other stats-
-haven't really stopped running throughout the injury
-can and have run in a wide range of shoes
Thanks for looking!
