Our expert says:
Both ankles? If it is, then it's probably a weakness that you could address by doing some specific strength training, like calf raises, balancing on one leg at a time for 30 seconds, lunges, side to side running. Obviously, not too much of this because a weak ankle will take strain, but those kinds of exercises help.
Also, it depends how long you've been running for. If you're new to it, then it might just be a phase that happens where your body will resist and be sore for a while. With luck, it will go away as you get stronger.
There is a chance you've injured yourself, and in that case, you need to back off the run for a little and shorten the distance, say to 70% of what you normally do. Then see how it goes. If the problem persists, then I'd see a doctor or a physio and get it diagnosed. I have a feeling it will go away with time and training, but just keep that option open.
Finally, make sure you're in decent shoes - if your shoes are worn out and providing no support, then you might be collapsing in and putting strain on the ankles. SO this is an importan tthing to tie down.
