Its wear they break the blood and nerve vessels that attach from surrounding tissue to minor Achilles damage. Apparently that's your bodies response to dmage and - the achiiles is susceptible to this. They break these vessels so the Achilles is not tethered or connected to nerves anymore, which is what causes the pain . I am pain free and no longer hobble to the toilets (well, one leg anyway).
Westy - 5mins would be nice!! Had my Achilles stripped and it fells better than it ever has (excepting the small tear) - so much so Ive asked the doc to do the other one. Whilst I feel great I am taking another week off and looking at a 12 week plan. Will revise target a bit closer to the time. You are on the edge of an injury by the sounds of it. Take it easy for a few days - some low impact x training might help.
Wenty - welcome back
Toe nails? What are they?
Ramjet - Wrexham is my home town - born and bred until 10 yr old. It is no longer the hard but fair place it was, but I still love it - I am looking forward to the race - might have to defer my GFA attempt or maybe just do the two - they are six weeks apart after all.
Ive always wanted to do a raced 20 as part of Mara training but never been in the position to. Whilst it takes quite a bit out of you, you are certain of what is achievable after you've done it (so im told)
