Hello guys, it's my first post here, so I'm not sure if this is the right topic, if not sorry about that. ( I apologize in advance for not using the exact snb expressions, but I will try to explain as best as I can)
I have been riding for 7 years I guess and last year I started having this problem. Yesterday, when i returned from riding I could barely step on my right foot- the one I have in front. The problem is after 5-hour riding, I feel pain in the muscle above my ankle, on the outer side, it's like 5 cm above it. That area gets stiff and maybe a little swollen, making me unable to continue riding because it's almost unbearable pain.
What could be the problem- when I ride all the way down the hill ( I'm from small country, so we don't have really high mountains), I unzip my left foot and keep the right in the binding so I cant get to the chair lift. So it's usually like this: I ride down, leave only right foot in the binding, wait in the queue for the lift like this and get to the top, where I put my left foot in the binding again. I have set 15 degrees on the right foot and got 0 on the left. I think my ankle can't handle the queueing with one foot still attached to the binding cos it's a little bit twisted or how to put it. I do not feel any pain while riding down the slope, so the problem must be somewhere else.
I would be grateful, if you helped me, maybe I need to adjust my binding or my muscles are too weak, I don't know and I¨m getting desperate, cos it's day two and it still hurts a lot.
Thanks a lot
