With just a few minutes to go before the end of week 8 run 1 (not my most enjoyable session), I started to feel some pain in my achilles tendon. As I wanted to complete the 28 minute run I kept going until the end but, the brisk cool down walk at the end wasn't very brisk - rather more of a hobble. After some stretches, and some Ibuprufen, it wasn't too bad yesterday evening but this morning my right achilles is really sore.
As it is, I'm really not very confident that I'll able to run for another 28 minutes tomorrow evening.
Somebody suggested that I should buy some heel lifts but has anyone had the same problem and what did you do to get back to running again.
With only 5 more runs to go before graduation and a park run on the agenda at the beginning of November, I'd be absolutely gutted to have to stop now.
So any advice or tips would be really appreciated.
