Hi all, been quiet for a while, but I am still running and was making steady progress getting up to 7k fairly comfortably. Now disaster has struck!!!
While on holiday and running in an unfamiliar place I pushed myself way too hard up a really steep hill, unbelievably stupid, i know! Especially as I tend to avoid hills in my usual routes. Anyway afterwards really painful achilles and pretty much ever since.
I had a week off last week and it was starting to feel a bit loser, although really really stiff first thing and also if I sit down for a long period. Went out this morning and had to pull up in less than a minute in real pain.
Have self diagnosed tendinitis or tendinopathy it is sometimes called and will go and see physio. But can you tell me vaguely how long until I will be able to run again? Also, it is much less painful in the evening after a day walking around on it, so should I maybe try and go out then? My preferred morning runs a non starter as pain is really bad first thing.
Sooooooo frustrating, i don't want to lose all the form I have so painstakingly built up and am feeling really miserable about It
A very sad Em
