I'm going to see Erik Moen today to find out how severly I may have injured my achilles tendon. Apparently this is a common injury for cyclists and can cause further complications down the line if ignored. I'm bummed. Ryan and I are quite a pair - he with his hamstring and I with my achilles. At least we are both in pain on this wonderful Valentine's day!
I have taken the last two days off. I sat on the couch, alternating every twenty minutes of freezing my heel off while reading a book. It's hard just to sit still. But I know time put in now toward recovery will speed up the healing process.
