mikee7 daysProbably caused by increased training plus unusual stress on the foot (snowshoeing plus a long off-trail training in snow). I think rest is the most important in this case. Used anti-inflamotory gel. Should not have done the training 31.12.05.details

GM7 daysnot 100% sure of cause but have started a program of loaded eccentric stretching/strengtheningdetails
iansmith7 daysContinuing to use old running shoes either uniquely caused or contributed to the discomfort I was experiencing. After realizing this, I discarded my shoes and spent several days resting before resuming activity. The pain abated after this rest period, though my achilles felt a bit tight after extended use. I briefly used iced, applied heat pads, and used NSAIDs after exercising. I experimented with compression sleeves (Ace bandages) intermittently.details

Scotta9 days I think I made two stupid mistakes: 1. I did not warm up before the race. I sat inside the chalet until the start, then hammered. The big hill immediately at the start is followed by relentless hills for 20k or so. 2. New ski boots.I switched from Solomon Race Skate 9 to the Solomon RS Carbon. Supposedly it encourages ankle flex; I haven't trained on them jut bought them and raced in them. Violated the golden rule of never trying new equipment on race day.

Need to allow for more rest, especially after hard runs and races. Probably shouldn't have mixed as many races into the training schedule, as they seem to tie to the injuries. Achilles and calf problems are one in the same, and I need to add a weight training regimen to help avoid the problem in the future. Anti inflammatory prescriptions both helped. P...details

Zimmers27 daysI am going to go with recovered because it's been really good this week. Resolution I think is primarily a result of doing zero running and ellipticalling for 5 days. That and a prescription Anti-Inflammatory (topical solution - Pennsaid) which is supposed to be 3x the strength of Voltaren. Another big help included doing Eccentric loading calve strengthening and a pile of achilles and calf stretches. details

manolo28 daysIncreased mileage and speed too abruptly (inexperience). Stopped running for 1 week, ran again and made it worst. Decided to rest, apply ice and do eccentric stretches. The combination of these three healed it (90%) in 3 weeks, and strengthened it...After 4 weeks pain was gone for good. During the healing period, I educated myself about running, how to increase mileage, endurance, stamina, etc. I also do warm up now and understand the importance of it! Eccentric stretches are the best!details
Chas28 daysNot sure what caused it but first sign was lower calf soreness. Could have been as a result of trying to do some speedwork. Get treatment early next time this happens. Gradual build-up, running alternate days seemed to work quite well. Don't try doing intervals until I've built in some efforts into my normal steady runs first.details

cunderwood37 daysWe think it was caused my unbalance in muscle and tight hamstrings. to keep balanced muscles dont run the same direction around the track or on the same side of the road when you run. Switch sides every few minutes. What helped recover? Time and stretching. To prevent reinjury do calf raises and hold. Make sure you go straight up and don't turn foot at end. details

JonD41 daystook 2 weeks off from running; went back to running before it was completely pain-free but this seemed to actually help; vigorous stretching of calf plus use of "foam roller" on calf really helped. direct massage of tendon also helped. Notably, using the neoprene sleeve and stretchy brace did not seem to help w/ swelling but might have kept it supple over night. wearing orthotics during all activities seemed to helpdetails

angela51 daysdue to pressure on bursa on heal from shoes due to lots of training. Rest seemed to help I guess. Heal less casual shoes. U padding on heal to prevent further pressure/pain. details
casser52 daysWaited around for a while - but really little amounts of exercise is better as the achilles needs to be stretched a bit to get better - probably it would have been even better to do the excentric calf exercises. Anyway now it is good enough to train even through it is still sore. On the other hand one or the other achilles has always been sore in the mornings when I was training for real and not just for fitness as nowdetails

apetren68 daysI think that I ran much on athletics track, was the cause to the injury, combined with more training than before. Much rehab training in the beginning, about 1-2 hours a day, containing much balance exercises, and for the calf muscles. Don't even think of running long distance. Massage in liniment together with some pain killing ointment Voltaren f ex. It's important that you take the ointment first and the liniment after. Do this twice a day for 1-2 weeks and it's cured (For me).details

JL205 daysOm jag kan springa 6h i skogen är jag inte skadad längre. Har inte ont och har inte haft ont i själva hälsenan på rätt länge. Det som stör är att jag då och då får lite ont i området kring övergången till vadmuskulaturen. Men det verkar ju inte bli värre av den löpning jag utför nu så vi får se om det håller i sig eller om det blir värre när jag ökar mängden löpning.details

Corduroy259 daysLångvarig överbelastning/inflammation i vaden gick över till hälsenan. Lyssnade inte på kroppen och körde på ändå. Lösning: 3*50 excentriska tåhävningar VARJE DAG på både hö och vänster ben från 31 maj till dec. Excentriska tåhäv på gym 3*15 maxbelast ca 1 ggr/v. Över gick till mer sporadisk träning under vintern då skadan slutade besvära.details
Malla260 daysdetails
Whitesheep262 daysCaused by new exercises (bounding/jumping/hopping) with too much intensity too often. Maybe exacerbated by running in aggressive minimalist shoes around the same time. Should have picked up something was wrong earlier and stopped. Eventually found that gradual reintroduction of running with lots of stretching was the best cure. Complete rest seemed to lead to no improvement and maybe even made it worse.details

Linear Ice273 daysIt's been a couple of weeks now, and pretty much no feeling of AT, so I am going to call this episode "over" and hope I don't have to open it in a day! I think it was caused by running on the treadmill, i wore a pair of shoes that wasn't my own, and ran fast for 6-8 miles. Dumb, really, except I didn't know it was dumb at the time. details

Nick Harris375 daysI'm closing this injury file because its reached the point of being preventable with some ongoing management. Much like my knees... Most effective rehab was regular eccentric range exercises, with commitment to controlling acute inflammation (eg: post-run) by icing and the occasional nighttime voltaren. Ongoing management: eccentric exercises at reduced volume. details
haggis386 daysdetails
Linear Ice389 daysI think it was caused primarily by faster running, specifically on treadmill and stretching out too far. I believe that changing my cadence (180/min) and running slower helped quite a bit. I still can press the AT and feel some discomfort, but not when running so after more than a year I am calling it "resolved" but I will have to remain vigilant and stay a bit more cautious (slow).details

paul516 daysI caused my injuries by running home, not in running shoes, severly pissed after a work party in the middle of nowhere at which noone was in any condition to drive!. At first it was inspirational, It was pissing cats and dogs, I was invincible, the 15km hilly run was a piece of piss and was going to be the start of my comback. (did I mention I was quite inebriated). Boy were my calves tight the next day!!!!!! What a dumb ass! Spent the next 2 1/2 years trying to sort out both achilles......details

phil606 daysDie Entzündung des Achillessehnenansatzes rechts hat sich gelegt (allerdings visuell immer noch recht verdickt). Wahrscheinlich wird es ein 'soft spot' bleiben, aber meine Aktivitäten werden dadurch nicht mehr limitiert. Was gab den Ausschlag? Ich habe etwas häufiger leicht (nicht intensiv) den Wadenmuskel gedehnt, aber das habe ich auch schon früher von Zeit zu Zeit gemacht. Was wirklich neu ist, ist dass ich mehr als die Hälfte der Trainings mit dem on Schuh laufe. Am Anfang hatte ich g...details
