Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> I have been going for a 2 mile walk every morning for the past week and 1/2 that has turned into a walk/jog. I'm only going 1/4 mile (jogging) at a time before the 1/8 mile recovery but I have been having God-awful pains in the area where my Achilles tendon is when I'm done jogging. It starts to hurt during the jog but REALLY hurts when I slow to the walking phase. I've tried to stretch it but everything I do stretches my calves and that's not the part that hurts. ...

Thu, 12 Jul 2007 13:40:43 EST If you have never been to this site, give it a try! It's the best way to discover new music that is like something you already love (in my opinion).
