My weekend was fine. I pretty much spent the whole weekend at home, studying. Also, had a friend come over on Sunday for a good 4 hour interview prep session for what at the moment feels like the most important interview of my life!
I feel like such a health blogger. It snowed in on Friday so my university was closed. Guess what I did? Make banana oatmeal and went for a treadmill run! Ain't that a great way to celebrate?
However, I have an issue. My Achilles Tendon has been acting up. I didn't even run this week before Friday??? It's not a sharp pain and I can walk fine but I did have a nagging pain the second I start running. It went away as I kept running. A part of me is blaming the piles of snow and slippery icy roads. I fell last week while running after the bus (still caught it!) and the area in my university doesn't get proper snow clearance. Hence, walking on "rough terrains" could have aggravated it? Could also just be barefoot running :S It probably is a combination of things and maybe even calf stretches in hot yoga? Also, I of course have to be a "jumpy squirrel like creature" when I'm at home and jump all the time. Sorry Achilles Tendon, I know jumping up and down doesn't do you any good. I'll just have to divert my energy into something else... like planking.
Well enough of
Well it'll be RIES for me for now. Rest, Ice, Elevate, Stretch :P
Have you guys ever had issues with the Achilles Tendon? What did you do about it?
