It’s not an overuse injury – it’s a biomechanical imbalance induced injury.

With a foot issue fresh in the mind, I had to do a lot of reflecting on what really caused this.  The first feedback from many was – you were overdoing it.  Well, with so many marathons, I could see that people would think that.  However, with proper evaluation from my sports docs, it really turns out that the body strength was out of balance.  Sometimes it’s so easy to just “go for a run” and be done with it.  No warm up.  Little strength training. Non specific crass training.

Lesson learned.

Here is a great post from Runner’s world about how to fix muscle imbalances and prevent injury, and aid recovery.

Thanks for reading this blurb.
