Anybody got through the prescribed alfredson protocol of 12 weeks before that time? ;and 1. Able to start running again at that stage with success? 2. How did the alfredson protocol feel for you? Eg lots of discomfort or mild? 3. Did it cure your Achilles tendinopathy? 4. Did you run through the protocol?
Hi fellow Achilles sufferers. I'm still doing the heel dips and managing 3 x 4 mile runs per week. It's nowhere near what I was doing but I've accepted the fact that I need to strengthen and get my tendon healthy again. Still getting stiffness in the morning and it's hard to tell at the moment if it's the heel dips which is causing strain too but I'm persevering. I'm doing both types of heel dips - straight leg and bent leg. When I first started them I felt strain whilst doing the bent ones but ok on the straight. Now I don't feel strain and I'm hoping that this is a sign that I'm on the mend.
