I gotta get over this!</p> Sat, 09 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 08, 2017 <p>Didnt feel great</p> Fri, 08 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Dec 07, 2017 <p>Ran</p> Thu, 07 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Dec 06, 2017 <p>Right achilles was hurting earlier in the day randomly in the afternoon but I felt pretty alright during the run.</p> Wed, 06 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Dec 05, 2017 <p>Feeling good. No pain in the right and the left is feeling better.</p> Tue, 05 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Dec 04, 2017 <p>Still some old tightness in the left Achilles and a bit of fresh pain in the right Achilles. Interesting to note how taking a day off (Sunday) seems to not help at all at this point. Maybe quitting running cold turkey isn&#39;t what I need.</p> Mon, 04 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Dec 02, 2017 <p>Left leg felt pretty good- started feeling some pain in my right Achilles! Uh oh. Maybe it&#39;s because of the way I switched doing my heel drops. I found another way that doesn&#39;t put stress on either Achilles to raise my other foot.</p> Sat, 02 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 01, 2017 <p>Basically the same as yesterday. No pain, but plenty of clicking and lack of feeling relaxed. If it&#39;s not improved&nbsp;by Monday, I might go back to the elliptical.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 01 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 30, 2017 <p>8 miles. A little faster, and pain free, but still My body was naturally wanting to&nbsp;avoid&nbsp;stressing the&nbsp;Achilles.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 30 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 29, 2017 <p>7.5 miles&nbsp;</p> Wed, 29 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 28, 2017 <p>I just want to make sure I&#39;m getting better, not worse. It hurt a little today so I just ran rather than risk it.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 28 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 27, 2017 <p>8 miles. Felt a little tug. I&#39;m not sure if I&#39;ll work out tomorrow or no.</p> Mon, 27 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 25, 2017 <p>8 miles, felt even better than ieri</p> Sat, 25 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 24, 2017 <p>7 miles, felt better than ever.&nbsp;</p> <p>NOTE: Today was Black Friday so I bought my 7th pair of Adidas AdiZero Tempos. I won&#39;t start using them right away (they&#39;re technically a Christmas present from my parents) but just so I can remember how many pairs I&#39;ve purchased, that&#39;s the number we&#39;re up to now!</p> Fri, 24 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 23, 2017 <p>Once again a little stiff, but no pain</p> Thu, 23 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 22, 2017 <p>6 miles. Felt a little stiff towards the end, but no pain</p> Wed, 22 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 21, 2017 <p>Ran some and then did the eliptical as well</p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 20, 2017 <p>Ran to the gym to do the elliptical</p> Mon, 20 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 13, 2017 <p>Hour on the elliptical. 7.32 &quot;miles&quot;</p> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 11, 2017 <p>Today I ran to the gym to do elliptical. All week I&#39;ve been doing elliptical, no running. Treating it a lot more aggressively including some other exercises for mobility and balance in the hope of getting better. Additionally, I have way ramped up my heel drops because I read that for elite athletes 15-25 isn&#39;t enough to put it under stress. Today I still felt like I was limping a bit.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 11 Nov 2017 07:00:00
