I've decided to become more serious in my training and have joined a tri club. All was going well but maybe i was a little too enthusiastic and i now find myself with a achilles tendon injury and a problematic shoulder (through excess swimming of all things).
I have a place in VLM next year and was training well until i felt pain with my AT. I was about 5 miles from home and ran/walked home as best i could. I decided to visit a sports injury specialist who applied friction massage and carried out a lymph drainage procedure. I gave the running a rest (while fiollowing the RICE procedure)for 10 days and cycled and swam instead. I tried gentle running on a track this week and duiscovered that my AT is no better. To add to this i've got a slight shoulder injury that continually "pops" when i turn my wrsit. I'm about 2 months into my training and find myself injured,a little broke (from equipment/sports injury costs etc.) and hugely frustrated i cannot train.
I've been running and cycling for about 5 years so consider myself fairly experienced but if anyone could offer any tips on where i am going wrong it would be greatly appreciated.
