P&D Autumn Marathon Training Thread 2014

Posted: Yesterday at 13:10

I had an appointment booked through work medicare thingy due to increasing Achilles pain, then I tore it the night before the appointment (not bad timing I guess). Spire hospital in Wrexham.

They inject a lot of fluid around the tendon under ultrasound guidance which forces the surrounding tissue away and breaks the blood vessels so it is free again. Bloody marvellous. Look up high volume injection stripping

Edit - its a week exactly since the procedure and I am starting to x train on a spin bike. Might go for a walk run session next weekend if there are no issues and slowly build up for two weeks from there.

Nice running Scott and some decent mileage being racked up by others.

Doesn't fix it, so injury is still there hence further time off, but I can pinch the Achilles on my right leg without whining nowadays (except area with tear) and due to the lack of neovascular activity(?) it will reduce the swelling and the inflammation will go down apparently. I also don't look like an octogenarian when I get out of bed these days.

Maybe cross training is the way for the moment 15w.

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).

Alright boys n girls.

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)

Nice running Eggler

Nice Festivaling 15W

Madbee - was sitting down with my feet up on another chair. My foot looks nowt like that now, except for some bruising it looks normal, and the stripping has worked it seems as it is less tender than it has been for some time. Wish I had the other one done at the same time

Just watched Steve Way interview at the commonwealth games. What a story that is.

Not a full rupture MM thankfully but it is proper sore, so could be worse. min 4- 6 weeks if I am really lucky then a slow build up. Cest La Vie and all that bollox.
