I ran on Tuesday -- first time outside since I injured my Achilles tendon a little over 6 weeks ago -- and made a point to keep my speed and run/ walk ratio in check. Felt a little soreness after my run (3 miles of run / walk, 1 mile of walk), but overnight on Tuesday and most of the day Wednesday the tendon was VERY tender and sore! So, got onto my insurance co. web site to locate an Orthopaedic doctor in my area, found one, and made an appointment for Friday.
Keeping my fingers crossed it is not a serious issue, but I just have not been able to shake the soreness / tenderness issue after any sort of physical exercise that require the use of my legs (no issues swimming, thankfully).
More to report after my appointment...
