Ankles and the woods

Since the minor sprain of my left ankle nearly 2 weeks ago both ankles have been a bit delicate. Seemingly I have started to irritate them again with the edges of my shoes. The Red Brookes shoes were especially bad on the run to the circuit class and I threw them off the minute I arrived. The circuit was mostly abdominal muscle work so I didn't miss shoes  on the whole.

For today's 10km-ish (it was nearer 9km in the end) run to be gentle to my ankle I wore the low cut Runnegade shoes. This distance seemed to be fine and they weren't irritating. I think this confirms the the problem with these shoes is not the neoprene cuff but their reduced heel drop. Hopefully I'll gradually get used to it.
