I suppose you could say I have finally listened to my left achilles, which was shouting SO loud I had to abort a run for the first time last week and hobble home. Lots of ice-ing, elevating, deep heat, painful massage and rest (grrrr!) and trying not to panic about a 10k in three weeks and a HM in 7( only got to 2/3 distance in training- eeek!)
Tried a slow 5k walk yesterday- so far, so not so sore.DH suggested a bike ride this morning and I know its not the same, but *says quietly* it was nice to be covering the ground a bit more quickly😉I could start a hardware shop with the amount of stuff at the side of the road but fortunately no punctures and a bit of free-wheeling at the end 😁. Also I’ve discovered where the non-existent tail wind goes when you’re running- it only works for cyclists!
Anyway, just wanted to say I’m still here and haven’t crossed permanently to the dark( wheeled) side and I have everything crossed for a light jog to the end of the road tomorrow! Hope you’re having a fabulous Monday, whatever you’re up to.
