Achilles injury due to running shoes? Watch

    Hi,

    So, a week or so ago, I was training as normal on my local athletics track. During the session and a short while afterwards, I had a sharp pain at the back of my right ankle that felt almost as if I had bruised the area, but I haven't. I would presume that I've done something to my achilles, but if that is the case, would it not hurt all the time? My ankle only hurts for about half an hour after taking off my shoes; otherwise, I can run and walk barefoot perfectly fine. This is why I was thinking about it being the shoes, but I'm not really sure how that could be? These aren't new shoes: I've been wearing them for at least 6 months without any kind of injury whatsoever, and, as said previously, this has only happened in the last week or so.

    Anyway, thank you!
