My training at the moment seems a little bit like walking a tightrope. Last week was my second week back following my Achilles problems and I managed to increase the mileage to 54 mile for the week.
Wednesday was a comfortable 5 miles followed by a 9 mile fartlek on Thursday. Friday and Saturday, however, were very light, easy runs due to some painful twinges from my right Achilles.
On Sunday it was a steady 15 miles. Which started well but I found myself struggling over the last 5 miles and again had some reaction from my achilles. Especially on the hillier sections of the run.
So now with only3 weeks to my next planned race (The Dentdale) I find myself torn between the desire to push on and the need to be cautious about this irksome Achilles. I suppose it's all a question of balance.
