I ran this week, and touch wood, so far no problems. I have been extremely careful, which has been very difficult for me to do as I do try and beat any time that I have previously run, even if it means pushing too hard, but this week my first week back after a couple of weeks I have run two slow 5ks both over 30 minutes, but not had an adverse reaction to them yet. I have also changed (temporarily) my intervals on a Wednesday to an elliptical machine just so I hopefully don't make my Achilles any worse. This has been a bit of a trying time for me, as I had really motivated myself to really improve my running over the winter, but unfortunately that has not happened yet. I am hoping if I can tick over until the new year that with new running shoes and then if my Achilles allow I will be able to push on. But I have come to a bit of realisation that in the grand scheme of things I am happy overall where I am fitness wise, and yes as we all think that things can and should improve, but not to the point where I can't run, swim or bike, that wouldn't be very productive really.
So hopefully off of the injury couch and gently training, with a view to when I am fully fit I can then make some running improvements.
I hope that you are all well and injury/sick free and keep on running!
