I did something to my achilles a few weeks ago. Ran as normal over Xmas having built up to 5/5/10 beforehand I had a few days off then did 7 miles and 10 miles, then 6 a few days later so nothing major.
During these my achilles started to twinge but was very minor and stopped when I did, until the last few miles of the 6 miler (Jan 1st) and it was a significant ache if not painful. Then, later that day and the next day it became a problem and despite stopping even a week later just completely went while walking back the office. Few hours later I was able to get home no problem though.
All the posts I can find indicate giving it a few days, but having been plagued by other injuries that have lagged on is there any way to tell when it's sorted (pain free for a week now) other than short slow runs cutting it off as soon as I feel pain? Or am I okay to run through mild pain?!
