Since I’ve started running again I’ve been made aware of my achilles again. Not painful when running, but a bit stiff in the mornings especially. So I’ve been rolling the calves (I have really right soleus) and stretching etc. Also started s&c.
The pain isn’t really in the traditional place though i.e. The centre of the achilles. But rather around the side. May be connected to ankle issues that I have. Last few ultras I’ve had my ankles battered to pieces. Hangover from 20 years of footy.
Woke up this morning and this bit is a bit swollen when I fully dorsi flex under load (standing). This is the bit that (I think) has been sore. It’s hard to isolate sometimes, and I’ve not been paying close enough attention to it. Is it achilles linked or the sole us, or something else? Any tips or advice? !
