Today marks 4 weeks since I last ran and injured my Achilles tendon. While I have done well by substituting other cardio activities (mostly swimming), it's just not the same as a good run!
I did some research on starting back up after such an injury, and between some exercises and a very gradual reintroduction to running, I should be able to start again this week. One expert suggested a one mile jog as a starting point, and increase 10% distance and speed each week. Sounds slow but reasonable.
I'll post my initial results after I get in my first run...
