I rolled my peroneals and was it ever painful – today I can hardly move my ankle without it causing pain up in the peroneal region on the lateral side of my left shin. I’m starting to wonder if I have overly tight peroneals in both of my legs, when I straighten out my right foot and point my toes I can feel tightness along the edge of my foot all the way to my pinky toe and the bottom of my heel where my achilles is attached. I’ve been a hockey goalie my whole life and I’m beginning to think I might have some sort of muscle imbalance and tightness in my lower legs from crouching on my skates the whole time.
