Walk/run Achilles test with a couple of quick downhills to test it. No Achilles pain at all for the run. KT tape support on ankle. Everything that was compensating for the Achilles kinda hurts but not bad. Probably can slowly start training again this coming week.
If it doesn't hurt tomorrow morning I'll be back on track-ish
30 minute upper body kettlebell work out. 3 stretching sessions. Achilles still hurts all day. Crazy 60 hour work week of doom is done so maybe I can chill out a bit. Added ice and elevation for 3 x 10 minute periods at work, the ice really helps a lot!!!!
Felt great this morning and all day so tried Achilles test w J. Calf hurt the whole time....entire leg feels bad now. Guess I gotta rest for a couple more days. high stress 12 hour computer work days so maybe the basement office of doom is slowly killing my body and soul from the inside out.
Stretch Achilles for 5 minutes x 2 - Felt way better afterwards. Calf is super tight and feels locked up. Did some research on piriformis issues and found an external rotator test.....confirmed that internal rotators on the right leg are really tight (probably compensating for injury) so guessing I need to get a squash ball in the TFL + Adductors to loosen them up.
In conclusion, I injured my rotators/hip stabilizers in my glutes doing stupid Instagram plyos. All that stuff locked up and I have no "spring in my step" on the right side. Calf is overcompensating every stride on the push and overstressing the muscle and inflaming the Achilles.
Solution: Stretch/roll the calf -> Roll the heel -> Roll out the TFL and hip muscles with a squash ball on the right side -> Go slow until the whole system fixes itself.
