Achiles Tendon irritation
I, too, am an avid cyclist.
For the past year I’ve built up my riding so that I could do a 100 mile ride without any troubles – and, in fact, have ridden at least 1 “century ride” every month of the year.
Three weeks ago I embarked on a 1300km+ ride – 7 days averaging about 120miles/day.
At the end of day 5 I started to experience pain in my left achiles tendon.
I couldn’t ride the last 2 days.
I’ve taken the last 3 weeks off and went to ride this morning, and with only 3 miles in, had to turn around as I could feel “something” in that tendon again.
No pain yet, but I could tell it was developing.
