Back Out On The Road

Achilles-injuries-1trialI went for a 4 mile run this morning for the first time in two weeks or so.  It felt great!  The reason I wasn’t running is that my Achilles tendon had flared up and would hurt for days after I ran.  I figured that rest (and some ice) was in order.  Now the reason for my tendinitis was most likely due to my sudden training for a half marathon after a winter of minimal running.  Yes, I knew better, but I did it anyway.  For reasons totally unrelated to my Achilles, I didn’t even run the half marathon!  But when I started running again, the pain and stiffness began, so I had to take a break.

While I wasn’t running I went back to the gym, and back to yoga.  It was really yoga child's posegreat to concentrate on weight training and yoga.  I managed to get each in a few times a week.  Now that I am going to add running back into the mix, I hope I don’t let yoga and weight training fall off (as they have in the past)!
