hello, i enjoy running and alternate it with power/astanga yoga and zumba and just regular walking. i do something in the morning every day, an hour running or walking with the dof and then sometimes zumba or astanga yoga at home.
problem is that when i run, ill run for a couple of months, do a five k or ten k race and then i injure my achilles tendon, or more like the back of the calf just above it and then i cant run for like three months. so i dont run but still walk and i also cycle about an hour almost every day to commute to work.
this has happened for like almost twenty years and i still havent figured out what to do here. i was going to get some of those up to the knee type pressure socks that everyone is wearing but theyre like 40 euros and i researched them on some running sites and theyre to improve blood flow/performance(bunch of bs? dunno).
i went to a special running shop and the expert guy said i was an overpronator and so i got a pair of wonderful, make you run like the wind 100 euro ON SALE brooks.
i am going to try wrapping it in an ice bandage while i run, as im feeling twinges already and its only my second day out running today since the end of NOVEMBER! dying here!
also, my ankle was broken when i was about twelve and i had a screw put in and taken out, but i walk normal and everything, no apparent residual problems there, though maybe i cant see it..
anyone have any other suggestions that i can try?
