Achilles tendonitis

M minus 9

I have noticed that over the last week some stiffness has developed at the back of my heel. It is noticeable in the the mornings or when I've been sitting for a while. Achilles tendonitis was confirmed by the physio yesterday. The good news (?!) is that it is mild and if I do as I'm told and stretch religiously and massage the tendon it shouldn't become a problem. So, sore right glute, sore left achilles - its a balancing act!

This was a great run because I felt that I was running really comfortably and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Again I was surprised by my average pace when looking at the stats after the run.

I was so concerned when I saw your blog entry title! I'm glad you got that achilles seen to straight away. I left mine for almost a year and had to take months off running.

Not long to go now :-)
