Get rid of one crutch, find myself with 2 more

The one crutch being the smoking - yes, we all know that is gone

Now I have 2 crutches, the pain was so bad, I took myself off to the minor injuries unit

Achilles tendonitis is the least I have, they need to rule out a rupture and now I am on crutches and cant do any exercise at all so anyone thinking of doing more exercise than they are used to, be careful and any pain at all, go get it checked as ignoring it like I did, at best it is going to take months to heal.

Oh well, that's life

Sorry to hear that. You are right, we must all start gradually and o warm up exercises as well as cool down ones. I hope it feels better soon.

Hate to say "I told you so......." Kat :( However, I am really sorry to hear about the crutches and hope your incapacity doesn't last long, also that you'll be a little more moderate in the amount of exercise you take once your superfit again :)

You poor thing! You've got enough to cope with without this happening. Just take it easy and do as you're told or it could go on longer. Best wishes. Libby
