Well the achilles is strained but recovery will be short and sweet. As long as I do my recovery time wisely the next few weeks, I will be solid for mid March. Yeah! Erik gave me a laundry list of things to do and what not to do. The most important thing to do is not over do it. Although antsy and excited for the upcoming season, I need to relax and take things slow. Chances are I'm overtrained for the season anyway. Maybe this achilles injury was a good thing in the long run.
I can get back on the bike trainer tomorrow - without clipping in and a low cadence for about 1/2 hour. I also have some strength training for my calves and achilles. A couple of weeks and I should be good to go.
