I've been given the go-ahead by my physical therapist to start some light running again. Finally. Four weeks off because of some annoying Achilles tendinitis had me a little stir crazy.
In the last week, I've been on five easy runs ranging from two miles to ten miles. The painful burning (tendinitis) is gone, but there is still some lingering tightness.
I'm told that more massage and more light running with help loosen up the tightness. So my fingers are crossed that I'll be up to full speed before I head off to Germany in a month. My catchphrase over the past week has been "cautiously optimistic."
Here are a few photos from my Sunday run with Buzz and Sadie.
