Tuesday TANGENTS + achilles pain?

I got Achilles tendonitis when I trained for my first marathon! It got really bad when I upped my weekly milage to fast about 12 weeks before my race. I found that icing it nightly, taking advil round the clock, and resting it for about 2 weeks (read: no running! swim or hit the elliptical at a low resistance for 20-30 minutes a couple times a week) helped. Once the pain subsided and I started running again, I used KT tape during mid-distance to long runs to add some extra support, and iced my ankles right after. The best way to prevent the whole cycle from happening is to STICK TO YOUR TRAINING PLAN and increase milage gradually, stretch before and after you run, and take recovery days when you notice a little bit of soreness, rather than pushing until it’s unbearable!
