For some time I've been wearing neoprene anklets to keep the Achilles warm. I work from home so I can wear them around the house. Some night's I've worn them to bed.
A mate of mine suggested icing the Achilles, which I've been doing after my walk/run. I filled an empty cool drink bottle up with water, placed it in the freezer and then rested by Achilles on it.
BUT, the last couple of days I've started putting a couple of ice cubes down the back of the neoprene anklet.While I'm working the ice slowly melts. I don't know where the water goes and I don't care.
I think it's working.
On the track Got up early and did half an hour on the stepper all over 140 bpm.
Then went for a walk with the boys and ran for 20 minutes. Things are looking up.
In the meantime stay tuned,.highly tuned, and keep icing your Achilles.
