Same here, just upped training to Marathon fron half and have a problem with achiles tendinitus also.
I find an ice pack post run (or a cold bath) and one ibuprofen before bed takes the edge of and I get a good nights sleep then. I also am cutting back every third week which seems to prevent it getting any worse.
Am interested in others approaches to dealing with this.
Have you took advice on your training programme? I was surprised to find I was running way too fast for my previous target and am now training at 1 min a mile slower than previously (I am training for a marathon).
Do you take on carbs post run as well as fluids. There are plenty off threads on here that confirm that you need to replace the glycogen through carb intake within an hour of running - I take a dieters replacement meal type milk shake and a banana. It seem sto help.
