Stride &ankle pain

I run REALLY slowly and although I have long legs i have a short stride so yesterday i did a trial trying to lengthen my stride ( i have little hope getting any faster at present due to being breathless & exhausted) this felt fine, almost easier than my usual technique but today I've had terrible ankle pain, i always stretch well as im worried about getting injured, any Advice?

  • When you were striking the ground were your feet in front of you (so you were "overstriding") or under your hips?

  • I am having ankle pain in just getting started. I didn't get a lot of others with similar here. Do a search of achilles tendonitis and see if you get helpful advice that way. I assured myself that this was what I was dealing with and not NECESSARILY a brewing injury - got a support wrap and heel cushions and hope to be back at it tomorrow.
