I've done a search (good stuff!), and done some other research, but I'm looking for some first-hand experience. I did some damage to my left achilles tendon about 10 days ago. I think that I just rode too hard without building up enough miles. Also, I have some pronation in my ankle that I think has also contributed to this injury. I've not had this type of injury before.
I gave myself 6 days of rest, and then attempted a moderate 30-mile ride. I most probably didn't do myself any favors as the pain came back, but worse.
Anywho, it's been 4 days since that last ride, and my leg is feeling a bit better, but I'm not about to "test" it again for a while. My questions are these:
- For those who have had this injury (Koffe, I know that you are going through a similar thing now), how long did it take for:
1. You to get back on the bike
2. You to ride without pain
3. Full recovery
Any other information is also much appreciated. ThanX!!!!!
