It’s generally an overuse injury for runners, but it also can be exacerbated by where you’re running; if you run on icy slippery surfaces or very hilly terrain.
I am sooo bummed. This is my first injury since I started running besides my shin splints when I first started. The cure is rest, ice, compression and Ibuprofen. This is my second day of not running and I already feel like a caged animal! I just want to go out and burn a few and I can't even walk. It sounds like a few days of rest and see if the pain goes away.
I am starting to think I need to consider some kind of cross training in case something like this happens in the future.
