Seriously? Another injury! I felt like I was doing so well coming back from my IT band episode.
The doctor gave me perscriptions for Motrin & Calcium/Vitamin D and a referral for Physical Therapy. I was told to rest until it didn’t hurt to run and definitely not to run through any pain. She then proceeded to tell me a horror story about a ruptured Achilles that required surgery, casts, crutches & no running for 6-8 months. The story scared me enough to follow the doctor’s orders! I am hoping to be able to go for a short run on Monday. She didn’t blame my Vibrams. She attributed to not stretching regularly.
I do have good news…. the doctor also said I need to run slower, avoid hills and absolutely NO sprints!! That is definitely the best news I heard all day!
Any other suggestions for recovering from Achilles Tendonitis?
