Having spent the last 18 months unable to run due to a bad achillis tendon injury, misdiagnosed by the local physio, several attempts to get back onto the trails of Epping Forest, I have decided to invest in my own personal ultrasound machine to resolve the issue. Combined with a change in my training schedule including spin class, hot yoga and by adding more cheese, meat and wine to the diet (i highly recommend Vinoramica in Highams Park, they do a fabulous rosé). Things are starting to improve very slowly. But they are improving which is the main thing. A few more weeks of this before the family trip to Muskoka in Canada by which point I should be able to get back on those lake trails. Fingers crossed.
