Why strong ankles are vital, and how they play a major role in what happens to your entire kinetic chain during running

YOUR EXPERT

Sarah Milner is a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist at Pure Sports Medicine (puresportsmed.com) who enjoys working with runners, focusing on rehabilitation, injury prevention and performance enhancement.

The ankle comprises of bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. The joint itself is made up of three bones: the talus, tibia and fibula. At the ankle you have one of the largest tendons in the whole body, the thick and tensile Achilles tendon. Above it and attaching directly to it, are the largest muscles of the calf, the gastrocnemius and soleus. There are also several ligaments that act to stabilise the ankle, known collectively as the deltoid ligament and the lateral ligament complex. So as you can see, your ankle is fairly complex.

About Women’s Running

The weather is glorious, which means it’s time to push our training to another level. This issue, we take on the ultra: and it turns out us mere mortals can take this on! If you can already run 5K (just 5K!) we’ve uncovered a training plan that will take you up to 50K in 30 weeks. We also speak to our inspirational cover star Kerry, on making the journey from non-runner to running coach, and all with a smile on her face. And we’ve got a bumper review section this month, from bras for big boobs to the latest running shoes from all the top brands. Our big issue this month is equality: the more we run, the more we discover inequality in running – different distances and prize money for women (and by ‘different’ we don’t mean better…), and certainly different treatment. Pick up our June issue to discover what’s going on behind the scenes, and how we can work together to bridge the gender running gap.
