I'm new to running and one of my goals were to run a 5K. I have no idea what is going on with my body when it comes to running though. I joined a local running group recently and we meet every Saturday for training (and they encourage that you run 2 more days as well). Well my problem is, when I'm running and after running, I feel absolutely fine. But the next morning, my achilles tendon (or something around that area) is puffy and VERY tender and it's extremely painful to walk on it. I feel myself having to start week 1 over and over because it takes days for the pain to ease off so that I can run again. But then, as soon as I try to run again,it comes back! I've tried stretching, doing longer warm ups, but I can't seem to figure out why this happens? Is this a common runner's injury or something? It kind of sucks that I can't do any cardio workouts right now because I can barely walk to the bathroom (and crawling around is getting very old, especially when my 2 year old niece thinks I want to play "Pony" with her
). Any ideas?
No matter what size I am, I am just a huge package of AWESOMENESS!
I survived, so now it's time to really start living!
