Running 22:30  4.4 km (5:07 / km)
shoes: Asics DS Trainer 19
20min of jogging to test out the achilles after a 2 week course of the voltaren concoction. Last week I was feeling really positive about this treatment: the morning pain had disappeared, the micro-jog I did last week was pain-free, I'd decided it was going to get me back in proper running while I finished rehab. Since then a little bit of pain has returned in the mornings and I was beginning to doubt whether the voltaren was going to be such a big jump forward. So this morning I was feeling equal parts excited and nervous about the test run. I was literally scared to take the first few steps in case it just hurt like before ... I'm glad I did though, it was the best run I've had in months :) Not completely pain-free, there's a little something but it's just tightness rather than real pain. Now to see how it pulls up in the morning.
