After weeks of struggling with right Achilles tendinosis, countless hours on the elliptical trainer (the exercise closest to running that doesn't hurt!), and gallons of ice, I successfully ran 5-miles this morning with no pain!
As I'm not completely healed the challenge will now be to prevent recurrence of this overuse injury by not overdoing things! I'll instead ease into longer distances by continuing use of the elliptical trainer plus introducing more and more running miles.
Boston Marathon, here I come!!
