Well I went to the Podiatrist yesterday and he looked at my Achilles Tendon. His diagnosis is that I had an early stage of Achilles Tendonitis and the 11 days of rest he felt has cleared it up. There was no swelling and only minor pain. He proscribed for me a pair of heal lifts (that is one way to be taller) of 1 cm in height. In addition to stretching exercises, to start running (YEAAAAAA) with one mile, two miles, three miles, four and half miles, seven miles, ten miles. I can be back in service in about a week. I did my first mile last night with a lot of success. I could feel my tendon, but I was also thinking about it. I wanted to keep running, but I stopped after the mile. This was also the second time this past year that I have been out running during a lunar eclipse, is that an omen or something?
I will be running the Ragnar Relay next weekend and then back to the Podiatrist later the following week for a followup.
Keep streatching and running.
