Hike #35: Achilles' heel

Thursday, 2015-05-07
TwoBit Peak, from the 40th St Trailhead
1 hour
Yet another trail run—easy stuff

Today's was another “hike extender,” though I have no streak to extend. Perhaps I'm trying to extend the Achilles' tendon in my left foot, which recently has flared with minor tendinosis. I consider myself something of an expert at Achilles' tendinosis, having gone through four, now five, occurrences of it. The key, I've learned, is being active without causing additional harm. Pure rest isn't as good as active rest. Fortunately for me with this latest flare-up, that includes hiking.
