Schedule for today says 8mi easy, or rest.
My right achilles has been troublesome all week, heating up after workouts, settling back down after a few easy days. This morning it's undeniably sore, even when I'm sitting around doing nothing. I can tell that the soreness has altered my gait, because my hip and hamstring on that side are tight and sore too.
A tiny little cool front has sent some nicer air our way, and it's something like 73F outside, w00t! And I have a stressful thing (viola recital) looming this afternoon, so some aerobic exercise would really be a good thing.
But no. I really need to give this achilles a day without pounding on it. So why does this feel like punishment?

What happened? I had achilles problems a couple years ago and it was awful. Took a long time and new shoes to correct. I hope you have more luck than I did.
