I started running several yrs ago. I started with the beginners plan from runners world and built up my distance slowly. I was very dedicated and loved my runs one of the high-lights was an early evening run when the sun was starting to go down, I'd had to push myself a little to go but decided on the woods. As I ran down a little track I heard a noise in the trees, then suddenly a young deer ran out infront of me! No matter how much or little i had to push myself some days, I always enjoyed my run once I got out there.
Anyway, to get to the point, on my first 5k, which I managed to finish, I started to feel pain in my ankle. By the time I got home the pain had increased. The next day I went to the GP and I'd managed to get an Acute Achilles tendonitis. It took a long time to heal properly I even had physio. I'm now on a weight loss plan and would like to start running again but I'm scared it might happen again.
Any advice would be great!
