Hello

Im reading this for tips, I ran for 2 days and did some serious climbing on my treadmill(didn"t know imy treadmill could go that high) I had my rest day yesterday and noticed pain around my ankle throught out the day. So perhaps one more rest day and stretches... doink never thought of that.

As for shoe, I do use ASIC running shoes. I read years ago that they have best shoes for woman, so I've stuck with them ever since....

good luck...


Di..

Here we go again... commitment..

Hi there, sorry to hear you're having problems. I'm stuck too. I have a plantar faciitis heel and foot pain that is really bothered by running
Try rest and ice after running, and massage may work if its a muscle and not a tendon,look on line for how to do self massage of that area.
How about looking at your foot wear? Are they up to the job?
Other than that. it might be worth doing a different cardio work out until it's better.

If the stretches do not help, I suggest a sports doctor.

hi there victoria, i can understand how that can get you down as i've experienced it and do experience it still at times. i don't know if this will help you as well but it definitely has done wonders for me. check out this article and see if they do help out... : 6 Stretches Every Runner Should Do How to Properly Stretch After You Run -- By Jen Mueller, Certified Personal Trainer--for me the calf stretch and the IT band stretches has really done wonders after every run... if i don;t a proper calf and IT band stretches then i do feel the pain on my shins and the lower calf muscles and like you, stops me from being able to move about ... hope it helps you, too.

Mimi

Victoria,

I don't have an answer for you, but will be curious to read some of the responses. I'm having hip pain when I run. I also just started week 1. I start a training class tonight, so maybe they can give me some guidance. I think I may have started out running too fast - I'm trying to run a race from day one instead of building up to that. Hope you are feeling better soon and can move on to week 2!

Hi everyone,

I'm new to running and one of my goals were to run a 5K. I have no idea what is going on with my body when it comes to running though. I joined a local running group recently and we meet every Saturday for training (and they encourage that you run 2 more days as well). Well my problem is, when I'm running and after running, I feel absolutely fine. But the next morning, my achilles tendon (or something around that area) is puffy and VERY tender and it's extremely painful to walk on it. I feel myself having to start week 1 over and over because it takes days for the pain to ease off so that I can run again. But then, as soon as I try to run again,it comes back! I've tried stretching, doing longer warm ups, but I can't seem to figure out why this happens? Is this a common runner's injury or something? It kind of sucks that I can't do any cardio workouts right now because I can barely walk to the bathroom (and crawling around is getting very old, especially when my 2 year old niece thinks I want to play "Pony" with her emoticon ). Any ideas?

No matter what size I am, I am just a huge package of AWESOMENESS!

I survived, so now it's time to really start living!
