Canted Surfaces

Well, I think I know why my knee hurt the other day. It also explains the tenderness in my medial ankle after longer runs: running on the country roads around my house means running on a canted surface. Running on the same side of the road too, usually. This creates a functional leg length difference and can cause both of the problems I experienced.


The bad news is that fixing this problem is not as easy as it may sound. Running down the middle of the road is not always an option. So it may mean that I have to drive somewhere to run. Ugh.

You live and learn. I'd never experienced this problem before, really, because I hadn't run such long distances on rural roads before.
