I had to stop bike touring last autumn because my right achilles tendon (which was once in a cast for "cever's disease" about 8 years ago) was killing me. I almost think it had a minor rupture. All I want to do is get back on that bike and travel the world on my own accord, getting fit in the meantime. :^|
Walking is fine, since I havent been cycling it's fine too. It seems like normal. Also, when it started hurting (and creaking, eeew) I was eating a disordered super SAD.
I'm wondering if/hoping that now that I'm eating right, and the tendon at least seems fully healed, maybe I'll have less risk of injury this spring???? I hope so, otherwise I'll have a nice bike for sale.
