Hello people!

I started boxing 1 month ago and since a week I'm feeling rough pain from my ankles to the top of my feet when I'm walking. I though that maybe I was doing too much jumping rope, but even now that I stopped, pain is still there and it's not going for the best from days to days. I'm still able to go train in the beginning of the day, but at the end of the day it gets painful, even more if I try to run.

Do you think it's just because my ankles/feet have never been used before to that kind of training and it's just a question of time before they get stronger, or am I having somekind of weakness in this part of my body?

Anyways, somebody told me it's because I don't have boxing boots that support my ankles. Maybe he's right, the problem is that I don't have right now money to buy boots :/ Maybe I should go see a doctor, but I already know what he's going to tell me: "stop training for a couple of weeks"

Has anybody ever experienced such thing, and what would be your advices to me???

Thanks!

this to me sounds like your working muscles that dont get much excersise, even when a guy whos boxed for 10 years isnt on the ropes for a few weeks he'll be realy stiff and sore after his first few sesions back.

if you keep at it the pain will go, if you know for a fact its not this then consult your doctor.

It sounds like you might have a bone spur issue. I've had those before. Running is a big one that causes them. Basically a bone spur is when your bone suffers minor damage, and when your body fixes it, it grows too much bone back. The excess bone basically irritates your inner skin. Taking some time off can help this (or time on reduced exercise). There is no way to cure it except for minor surgery where they chisel the excess bone away. This is just one possibility. It could be something else completely. However, doing jump rope should not make you overly sore. The muscles most used during jump rope are your calves, and they should be strong enough to take it.
