Here’s another blog by a Mississauga Chiropractor…
I finished my first running workout in 3 weeks yesterday, and I finally had a pain free run. Three weeks ago at the track, I had a mild tear in my left achilles tendon. It left me hobbling for the next few days. I couldn’t push off properly from my left foot when I walked, and running was almost impossible.
Thanks to some Acupuncture and ART treatments + eccentric heel drops every morning, I no longer experience that same pain. Now my Achilles is just slightly tender when I rub it or squeeze it. I also threw on some heel lifts (from Sports Chek) in my shoes to take the pressure off the Achilles tendon when I walk.
So yes, my first workout back was a success. It was quite short, 2 mile warm-up with a 2 mile tempo, but “a pain-free session” was what I wanted. I’m back at the track this afternoon. I’m not sure what my workout will be yet. I just know I want to ease back into things, to get ready for the Chicago Marathon for October, 2011.
