Thanks for the comments. I have a chronic case of achilles tendonitis which is very difficult to treat. I've tried a lot of things including doing nothing but stretching for 6 months but as soon as I return to training the pain returns and sees me hobbling within minutes. I have seen a few doctors and many physios but nothing seems to make the injury go away.
It is great to see the same people on the thread that have been on here for years now. Incredoble really how this little thread has stood the test of time. Admittedly half of messages are by Beders claiming TOTP
Martin - I think folk say "Don't pop the blister" but I always used to particularly if it is a blood blister. The onceyoupop the blister I would pop some healing ointment on it then cover with a plaster. But I'm sure others will disagree with my advice. I used to suffer with blisters terribly in training. Compeed plasters are really good for covering blisters.
Simon - What are you training for is it a Half or Full Ironman?
Enjoy your bank holiday,
