Well today has been interesting....
Knew I had physio at 11.20 for my first lithotripsy treatment for a tear in my Achilles. Had well over a year of pain, which didn't ease with exercises from the physio or ultrasound, so went on waiting list for this. Been looking forward to and dreading today in equal measures as I want the tear to heal obviously but also heard this can be quite painful to get. It literally only takes 5 minutes to deliver 2000 shocks, the level depends on what you can cope with. It was sore but not unbearably so. I will have a few sessions of this with breaks of between 2 & 4 weeks.
So off I go to the gym 1st and did 15k on the bike on a higher level than I normally do (still very low compared to everyone else!) then off to the physio. It's not too bad now, although he said it will hurt and not to exercise for a few days (hmm,will have to see how it goes coz I am rather enjoying the challenge)
I have clocked up 150km so far so I may concede and take tomorrow off. Don't swim so that's not an option.
