AR - you plonker. Now you've gone and done it! Funnily enough, this idiot decided to run for two hours in new trail shoes and ended up with irritation of old injuries. So easily done isn't it? I think we need to think more like alcoholics with a once an injured runner always an injured runner mindset. I assume it is a recurrence of tendinosis as opposed to tendonitis?
SJ - best of luck with (a) the ultra and (b) new hip. (That really shouldn't happen in the same sentence should it?)
Yes, I have a mini-ultrasound machine which has proven to be very helpful when I can feel a bit of tendonitis coming on. Has saved me many a trip to the physio. Icing is good for tendonitis too. Heat and cold. Heat and cold. Repeat ad infinitum. Hope it goes as there is nothing worse than a niggle to distract you from the job in hand.
AR - be careful with that Achilles won't you? What sort of therapy are you doing? If it is tendonitis as opposed to tendinopathy, be wary of stretching and aggravating the injury. if it is tendinopathy, do you have a physio who is handy with a Graston tool?
Forgot to say I really like the shoes, PMJ. Feedback would be appreciated as I run in Sauconys and cannot find the model I am in back in the UK. I am (of course!) stocking up, but am also contemplating fall back options of which the Kinvaras is one...
