Hi I am so excited to have been given The Cool Impossible by my friend for my birthday this summer. I've been battling Achilles Tendonitis for 5 years now, and have tried literally EVERYTHING possible to fix it, but it still plagues me.
In the meantime, I ran my first Marathon in 2010, my second in 2011, and two half marathons in between, skipping 2012 because I just didn't feel I could do it again with pain....I've been running (and I use the term loosely...more like slow jogging) persistently STRUGGLING through my pain, sometimes okay, sometimes terrible.
I teach boot camp daily, so I am always on the move. I just got my slant board and poles and started the strengthening and balance exercises last week, and I'm going to persist through all of them until I get myself fixed, cuz I wanna do the LA Marathon this year.
Would love to hear from anyone who has been battling Achilles tendonitis for a long time, who was able to fix it with Eric's approach!
