|Subject: ||Something always hurts|
So, whenever I try to do a speed workout or increase the intensity of my training, I always end up getting injured. I can't really go more that two weeks without feeling a twinge/ache/pain anywhere, even when just doing regular base mileage.
1. Left shin always hurts. It got a stress fracture and a stress reaction on two separate occasions. Random twinges of pain there occasionally.
2. Side of calf/tibial tendon - just had to take 2 weeks of less mileage cause of that, and it still constantly hurts. I can't jump or sprint using my left calf fully, but it doesn't hurt anymore when I run, so I'm back to running again.
3. Due to the above, i think I'm using my left leg a bit more, which makes me knee/patella hurt, I think I've got runner's knee. I feel it when I go down stairs, or in the first few minutes of a run, and during a jog.
4. I always look like I'm limping when I run, I overpronate, and my form is really bad. Everyone's told me this. I'm really working on improving it and have gotten some minimalist shoes, and am transitioning into them slowly.
5. I've had plenty of bouts of achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis twice (once was in heel, other time on arch), and random twinges of hip and hamstring pain which I ignore.
6. I'm not overweight, I eat healthy, get plenty of rest, take ice baths, stretch, massage, ice, and all that.
What could help me?
