Do you find this better for your achilles than running?

Yea less impact I think is the reason. It seems to help warm it up and provides the best balance between giving some sort of training effect and not making the Achilles much worse. Can vary a bit I think on the location of the Achilles pain and also the chronicity of the injury - I wouldn’t prescribe this for first time Achilles pain as would want to avoid the positioning probably
