"What is Achilles Tendonitis?"
"The Achilles tendon is the large tendon at the back of the ankle. It connects the large calf muscles (Gastrocnemius and Soleus) to the heal bone (calcaneus). This tendon can become inflamed through overuse as well as a number of contributory factors.
It is estimated that 11% of all running injuries can be due to Achilles tendonitis. The Achilles tendon has a poor blood supply which is why it is slow to heal."
Just Peachy. I think I may have Achilles Tendonitis in my left foot/ankle... Of course, I have yet to see a doctor, but I'm pretty sure that's what he/she will tell me... It's not painful, I just have a constant dull ache.
The bad news is that I'll have to put off running and just about all forms of cardio for a while, perhaps a month or two, IF it is what I think it is.
The good news is that I can do circuit training to get my heart rate up.
