Oj, I know there's a bout a billion threads about bad Achilles'. But I'm trying to work out what cardio I can do with my Achilles Tendonitis and couldn't really find any adequate answers on the forum (or online). I
I have not done any cario for about 3 weeks now and it's driving me mad! I saw a physio about 2 and a half weeks ago and he gave me exercises. I put ice on it regularly. He said I could probably use the fit glide/elliptical trainer or exercise bike on low resistance. But I'm so paranoid about this achilles and it not healing I daren't use them. Apart from impact, what kind of movments of the foot are bad for Achilles Tendonitis and which will not aggravate it? I did try the elliptical machine once but it's hard to know if it aggravated my achilles because the pain in it is not very consistent. I do notice on the Elliptical Machine that, though there is not the impact of running, the heel does lift slightly each step.
HA! This probably sounds like a paranoid rant but I've seen the trouble so many people have had on this forum with their Achilles I'm just terrified it won't get better.
