Late Sunday, I started to feel a lot of pain in my left Achilles tendon - not the one injured previously. I think I know what happened - it's not even running-related, at least directly. Too many kids were having their shoes come untied at the soccer game Sunday and, in the process of re-tying one of their shoes, I kneeled with my left foot bent under me, and I think this strained my Achilles. Parents, please double-knot your kids shoes for soccer games.
Took yesterday off, no prayer of running, couldn't even walk without a limp. Started feeling a bit better last evening, played some kickball with the boys. Slept in the night splint last night and it felt still better this morning, but not 100% and more risk than upside in running at this point, with 12 days until Towpath. So just did my long-neglected core routine and more AIS.
Have an appointment with the chiropractor in 3 hours, hopefully that will help. Feeling pretty confident I will be ready for the marathon, but would prefer to tune-up the next week plus instead of limping into it.
