    Just a note really to say that I've got back into regular Achillies stretch and did Tiger Torr yesterday - achillies suddenly on the mend??!!

    Fells it is then!

    I couldn't agree more - those stretches really do improve the situation. It works for me every time, and provided I'm sensible getting back into the Fells, the recovery stays. Get too carried away and the fells exacerbate it again. Have you tried doing them with a weighted backpack to build some strength too?

    No I havent - but that's an idea though

    I've had no problems with my achillies for about 5years since the last big blow up - but this is niggly - as of Saturday though I am doing the strecthes 2-3 times a day and as I said it's deffo better after yesterdays run

    I do more road than fell at the minute so I think the change of shoe and terriane definaly helped

    I'm very pleased anyhow!

    Below is a link to a long, long article about the achilles but at the very end are described some effective(for me and a couple of others I know) and simple exercises to help strengthen the achilles and calf.

    I do the "Balance and Eccentric Reach with Toes", the most.

    It's still jippy but definatley getting better with the one strech I know so I'm sure that this is going to give me some more tricks

    Thanks

    And the beer is the final option when nothing else works?

    Achille op last 7days ago. Went to the GP to get the cast removed today - following instructions from the surgeon (weight bearing in a week time, but could have started to move it gently now).
    To cut a long story short, the GP refused to removed the cast because he feared 1 week was short and I could have sued him. Told me go to the hospital in a week time.

    I'm angry like hell

    Achilles

    Am I being foolish if I run tomorrow in the Liver Hill race?

    Hurt my achilles on the track 2.5 weeks ago and have mostly rested it since then. At first I felt like I was overcompensating with my other leg but did 5 miles yesterday and it didn't feel too bad - bit sore today though.
    Cycling does not seem to aggravate it and it's not sore to touch...if it is tendonitis am I risking making it worse?

    Re: Achilles

    2 months after my Achille operation I am still not ready to run.

    To put it simply: if it gets painful after you finished running, you should not have run.
