Couple of miles easy.  Doc looked at the Achilles with an ultrasound and concluded mild to moderate tendonosis. O.K. to run light as long as the pain doesn't get worse.  Start PT next week for some ASTYM treatment that will speed along the healing.  Bright side, I can run, light, but it's running and that beats not running. Feeling good about the recovery. :)

1:10 on the treadmill.  Slow easy pace, 9-9.5 min/mile pace steady for an hour. Kinda boring, but I'm good with it.  Probably what I need right now anyway, slow, longish aerobic running.  Achilles about the same. Which is good, 'cause it's not worse.

Hour and fifteen on the 'mill, sloooowww.  Audio books keeping the boredome at bay.  Felt good to get in some time on the feet.

Hour and a half on the 'mill again.  Nice and easy again.  Three runs in a row all an hour or more, Achilles feeling about the same, maybe a notch better.  I started keeping a chart, 5  being the baseline, closer to 10 good and 1 bad, been at 5 to 6.5 all week, so a little better, but no worse.  Might give the trails a light go next week.
