I finally found a cure for my chronically hurting Achilles tendons (or my Achilles Tendinitis, as I learned from several running websites). After 10 months of soreness it finally seems to be over. The cause? My inflexible calve muscles. Only a week of serious stretching and massaging (deep into the knotted calve tissue) has done the trick. Just in time to experience completely new pain: some kind of burning pain on top op my left foot and rather bizarre some kind of sharp pain in the ball of the same foot, a feeling like stepping in a needle and continue running without removing it. It occurred during my very gentle, very easy, very “I am kind to myself and make sure I don’t get injured” lunch time run. The answer, as always: Rest. But how can I rest when there are only 4 and a half weeks to go? 22nd of April and with it London Marathon comes closer and closer. Not quite sure what to make out of that, but I guess I take the train tomorrow instead of the bicycle and do some serious resting. Grrr.
