Definitely a recovery run from Saturdays run. Legs were beat the first couple of miles, then they figured things out and ended with some solid miles. Now icing the Achilles, hoping to flush some inflammation out.

Achilles test run. Bought some new shoes with some heal lifts that I put in them. Seem to be helping the Achilles quite a bit. Todays pain was roughly 3/10, which is the lowest it has been in months. Just need to focus on slow progression so I can be ready to race in 4 months.

Overall I think a good run for me. No pain in the Achilles today but definitely some inflammation. The Volteran Gel is doing a good job of keeping inflammation down. I just need to keep on the rehab and recovery to help speed healing. Not in very good shape right now hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can start doing hard efforts without limitations do to the Achilles. As of now I know my place, back pack of the crew!!
