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

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.

My go-to guide on how I got better: rest hard and fast. Leg raised while working and sleeping. Ibuprofen gel and tabs also helped, along with heel raises, hopping an jumping gradually (from day 3+ of injury, graduating as felt stronger). Keep runs sensibly short, stopping and walking once it starts to ache. Finally: ...details

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

c.underwood37 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

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

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

Tyckte mig känna hälsenan vid ett tillfälle, annars inga problem med själva hälsenan den senaste tiden. Lite öm vid tryck, men långt ifrån hur det var när det var som värst. 131231: Avgör att runt sista Juni får anses som ett stoppdatum.

joch55183 days Three and a half months after started doing eccentric calf exercises. The injury is not over yet, but now it's so much better I rarely feel it, and even then only when I "pinch" the tendon. I never feel it during runs now. I am going to continue the calf exercises until it's completely cured, but I can probably finally close this six months old injury report.details

Det som stör är att jag då och då får lite ont i området kring övergången till vadmuskulaturen.

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!

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
