Breakdown / Achilles Tendonitus Saga Cont.
Workouts pretty straightforward, pull-ups will be paused at the sticking point.
Yesterday I decided not to bike and just do a run/walk for 6 miles…
I probably got in a total of less then 1/2 mile.
But, I don’t think I reinjured it, just some aggravation.
Overall, the strategy of keeping always just on the edge of pain seems to be working. Felt pretty good job the morning and the heel drops are feeling stronger.
Debating about adding in weighted eccentric seated calf raises with a barbell on my knees. The idea is to further strengthen my soleus at the end range. While seated, the soleus can take more weight due to the muscle only crossing over at the ankle unlike the gastrocnemius, but I’ll see how it feels after the deads.
