Signed off. Janathon day 11 and 12. 


So I finally made it to the Physio. 

Probably just need a good massage and a bit of advice, I thought.  


To cut a long story short I have some damage to my Achilles tendon (tedonosis) which will require some help to heal and some strengthening. The cause, as well as a bit of over use, goes back to my hip alignment (cause of a previous injury) so I also need to revisit my hip and glute exercises. 

Back to rehab for me. 

And NO running for the foreseeable.

At least I can cycle. 
Janathon days 11 and 12. 

One appointment at the physio, two walks to the shops and back,   3.8 miles cycled.

  1. When I returned to running after Achilles problems, I used heal lifts, they really help. Until then do s your told!

  2. Sorry to hear of the injury but I do wish you the best in the healing process.

  3. Bummer! How long are you off running?

  4. I can sympathise as I was in a very similar position this time last year. Determined not to repeat!

  5. hope it is better soon x

  6. Sorry to hear about your Achilles etc — so frustrating. But happy cycling, and strengthening!
