2. Don’t train on slope or uneven surfaces
is another way to prevent peroneal tendonitis. Runners are known for finding terrain that is difficult to run on, such as on sand. Sand is uneven and can make the feet and ankles turn out. Since runners are on sand, they may decide to run without shoes on. Without shoes on, the feet and ankles are not protected. Runners can step on anything while running.
Sloped surfaces make it not only difficult to run, but walk as well. People feel if they go on difficult terrain, it will make the workout even harder. That might be the case, but a lot of the times, the harder a person works out, the more damage they could be causing. The more times a person uses these difficult terrains, he or she is causing microtears in the peroneal tendons. Over time, the pain and swelling starts to settle in.
