Hello, long time since been in here as had my last run in September to to a tear in my achilles that refused to heal despite physio, ultrasound and lithotripsy. So yesterday I finally had surgery to fix it. They sorted 2 bits of the tendon and shaved a bit of bone but think the tendon will heal no problem if I take it slowly and do as am told.
Quite painful today and up to my eyes with Tramadol and co-codrymol. Tramadol is hideous and makes me itchy and headachy but does help with the pain. So here I am in crutches for the 4th time in 12 years!!
Anyway, I am planning a 5k round Central Park when I am in NY in November. I think this is achievable even though I will have to do C25K from scratch. Good thing is, I know I can do the programme as done it before with a torn achillies.
Hope everyone else is keeping up with their running.
