Okay, I mentioned a few weeks ago, that some reckless speedwork and a fast 5K had irritated my left achilles. My rehab strategy was to use the Strassbourg Sock at night, and otherwise ignore it. Since then I've run another 5K (much slower), and resumed a light/regular running schedule. Bad news, it's been getting worse, not better. Now it feels less like tendonitis, and more like a pretty deep bruise. Any suggestions? For the moment, I've switched to bike and pool, but will try a bric tomorrow because, well, that's what's on the schedule.
I think I am entering the phase known as delayed onset marathon soreness. It's like regular DOMS, but it comes on about a month after you run a marathon. You may recall we were all b*tching and moaning in December about how we'd declined since our Fall marathon peaks. Now I'm feeling it again. This is notwithstanding my 5K PR in late March.
I wonder what's up.
