I'm a random runner. I run then don't run, etc. I've been wanting to get on more of a regular schedule with it.
So, I did a sprint 8 on the treadmill at the gym the other day. 3 min warm up, 8 intervals of 30 second sprint/90 second recovery, 2 minute cool down.
I had no issues with the workout and was very surprised when I got back on the treadmill a few days later to significant ankle pain bilaterally. To the point where I have to hold on to the bars to take some of the weight off during the sprints. No pain whatsoever on the recovery, warm up or cool down, only when I try to pick up the speed/sprint. No residual pain at all after I'm off the treadmill. I THINK the pain is primarily in the back on both ankles but it's hard to be sure.
I've not had this particular issue in the past, even when I jump in and do too much too soon. The only thing I can think of is that I wore my Vibram's. I used to wear nike running shoes. I'd prefer to keep using the Vibram's.
So, do I lay off completely for awhile? If so, how long? And how do I ease back in so I don't re-aggravate once I do?
Thanks much for any responses!
