new year's resolution fail
January 4, 2012 6:35 AM Subscribe
I went for a rather long, brisk walk yesterday after an extended period of holiday-season inactivity and didn't think to stretch first (stupid, I know). Now I've got lower leg pain along the front where the leg meets the ankle, and the balls of my feet are hurting. Can anyone recommend some stretches or something else that will make the pain go away for now?

It isn't serious pain, but I'd like to go for the same walk again today and I simply can't walk that fast again. I could hobble the same distance but I doubt it will burn the same amount of calories. I've got good walking shoes on.
I do this walk semi-regularly and only experience pain like this when I am resuming it after a period of inactivity.
Cheers peeps :)
