Thanks chaps - some things to consider there.
Incidentally, what do you think triggered your tendinosis?
That is up for debate. I currently use Drummond Clinic for any 'ailments'. Once this started up I hobbled to the clinic. First thing was to put me on the treadmill, and they reckoned my left hip was tight, leading to the right foot getting planted too far in , so putting too much load on the achilles.
The thing is, I was hobbling and on this video analysis I was limping badly. I don't really value its worth. It might just as easily be as a result of overtraining having moved up to 6 to 7 days running per week, and not noticing the signs early enough
Things got no better , and I said I want to turn up to VLM 100% fit, or to pull out now if there was no hope. Some rehab exercises plus reduced running put me into a cycle of reinjury and I pretty much limping through 5 weeks to vlm (exactly what I didn't want, but like a muppet went along with it).
Drummond have been really good in the past, I'm just not convinced the cause and rehab approach leading up to VLM worked.
I think you need to improve your shorter times though,
Yes, I agree, but I tend to treat then like the DIY around the house. It is something I ought to do that will benefit me but have a CNBA attitude that needs a kicking first!
I tend to get all injuries to the right side. Last summer I was on a mission to find a phys / chiro / 'manipulator' to sort me out. Best I found was a nice young lady who offered to manipulate my jaw twice a week for 3 weeks.
