Some weeks ago I entered the Gear run which takes place on May 6th 2012 in Kings Lynn.
Then shortly after that IÂ annoyed an oldÂ Â Achilles TendonÂ injury 🙁 to say I was upset is anÂ understatementÂ !
Since then I have been resting it and stretching it, I even bought a foam roller to help massage my muscles.
All this time I have still been doing lots of walking trying to keep my fitness up, then I tried a mile run and it still hurt 🙁
Today was my make or break day when I tried out a 4 mile run.
I liked my new running shoesÂ and used my heel shockÂ absorber pads and although myÂ Achilles ached slightly it never got any worse and IÂ completed the run in 44 minsÂ
I was very happy to see that I have lost none of my fitness and I feel like I just might be
able to do my Gear run with out making myÂ Achilles worse.
I wont get Â a P/B time but at least I will be able to enjoy the run and the atmosphere.
Now I just have to wait and see how it feels tomorrow, at the moment its not aching at all so its looking good 🙂
BUT I wont make a finalÂ decision till Sunday !
Just don’t make things worse!
HOPE it is o k for the run ..you dont have to go silly.
