So, I did a 7 mile trail run in shoes I have never worn. My feet ached, my hip flexors burned and the next day my rigjt knee was tight, mostly in the back of my knee. No swelling or heat or clicking. Chiro says tib/fib joint. Stretching my calves seems to irritate it. Advice please!
Sounds like you did too much all at once.
Had you been running before this workout?
That distance in a new pair of shoes was probably too much.
Have you had anyone look at your running mechanics?
Have you seen any improvements with what you have been working with?
I have been running for quite a while. I really think the shoes set it off. I have noticed that there are some super sore spots in my quads and IT area. Been working them out with the lacrosse ball. Hoping that helps. Any advice on self mobilization for the tib/fib joint area?
It may have been too much distance for the first exposure to new shoes.
Yeah keeping working with your quad and IT Band areas.
