I am training for my first marathon and I do the slant board exercises for about the last 4 months as part of my warmup before every run. It has helped dramatically and heel and Achilles pain is mostly nonexistent for runs less than 10 miles.

For longer runs however I still have persistent heel and Achilles pain for about 24-36 hours afterwards.

Anything I should be doing differently to address the pain after longer runs? I assume I just need to give my body time to adjust to longer distances.

Also I am currently using both balance poles with the slant board...should I change to using only 1 pole or move up to stability disk exercises?
