I'm back. Achilles is okay, saw another physio (my usual one) and she said not to panic, just do loads of stretching etc.
On the foot front, it's the bursitis continuing to play up, nothing more sinister. Got to try another cortisone injection but need to see the consultant for this as it's not something the GP would do due to the position (between my big toe and second toe), so that means waiting a bit for it.
Ran a 10k race yesterday and was delighted - did lots of mountain biking and not a lot of running during August, but clocked 44:53 on my watch. My dream time was sub 45:30 so I couldn't believe how strong I felt all things considered. There was a short sharp uphill to finish, and halfway up something came over me and I stormed past two people in front of me. Here's hoping the comeback will last this time!
