I just got new boots as the previous boots I had did not fit me very well (heel came up way too easy, getting shin bang etc.) So I went to Fanatyk here in Whistler after reading that they were one of the best bootfitters here. Ended up leaving with Lange RS 130s as they were most suited to my abnormally high instep. These boots feel amazing just standing in them. The heel feels super locked in, no pressure anywhere etc, just the right amount of tightness everywhere. Much better than my old boots (Salomon Impact 8 CS.)
So I've skied a couple days on them now. I ski fairly aggressively, fast, bumps, jumping of small 5-10' cliffs etc. The first day was pretty good. However, after the second day, I have a lot of pain pretty much everywhere in and around the ankles and around my calves as well. It doesn't really hurt when I push on my ankle/calves with my fingers like a bruise would but it only hurts when I move my foot/turn my ankles like the pain is "deep" inside, not on the surface of my foot.
The first night I couldn't even sleep it hurt so much. Even when just laying down my ankles were aching. It felt like a very intense growing pain if anyone still remembers what that feels like :)
The second day after, today, it's significantly better but I still feel it a bit. I'm probably not going to try skiing again for a few days.
Any idea what happened here? Do you think I'm going to be fine and my ankles/calves just need to get used to a different stance/style of skiing in these new boots or will this keep happening after I recover from this time? Obviously time will tell but I'm hoping it's just like when you go to the gym and work out a new muscle and it's going to be very sore for a while the first time and then be fine.
