Tendidnits: Pain on the outside of the foot or ankle after swimming or running may be indicative of peroneal tendinitis, or anterior talo fibular ligament strain of the ankle. If you have a foot or ankle that supinates, it can create lateral strain to both the tendon and the ligamenst causing pain. Try and keep the foot neutral, or in running, get a temporary insole, or have a podiatrist perform a gait analys.
