Lately I have been having severe pain in my ankles while riding. It's really strange actually. It's only when I'm just walking (in the saddle), and is much more pronounced when I am practicing my two point. It hurts so much that I can only practice my two point at the walk for maybe a minute before the pain is just too bad. Any other gait and I am fine. I don't think it is my Achilles tendon stretching as it is more along the side of my ankle. If you look at this picture it feels like maybe the one labeled peroneus longus: http://home.comcast.net/~wnor/latleg.jpg
It feels like a deep burning sensation. Quite strange really. Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be and how to fix it? It really has been ruining my rides lately as all I can do on Amber right now is walk due to her being diagnosed with navicular. It really just started a couple months ago when I got a new saddle. I think that is just a coincidence though because the saddle seems to fit me well. Sorry for the novel. Kudos to anyone who read everything! I would appreciate any ideas to make my rides more comfortable. I'll also put a picture of me riding at a show in April at the bottom of this. It was soon after I got my new saddle and just a few weeks before the pain started.
