I'm back and ran a PR 1:50:10. That breaks down to 8:25 minutes per mile. I am still shooting for sub eights by the end of summer. Maybe I'm dreaming but it motivates me.

Thanks Jendf.:)

Any effective remedies out there for Achilles tendon soreness? I know I should rest it but I don't want to lose fitness by laying off too much. :(

That sounds aggressive. Good luck dude. Post back if you break it.

Thanks. I have successive runs of 8:47-8:35 and last week of 8:25. I'm going the right direction but a long way to 7:59.:DDsmilie_panic:

Great job, you finished in the top 11% out of 15,663 participants.
That sounds pretty good to me! Take care of the tendons. Maybe
if you work out on a stationary bicycle for a few days it would keep
your leg muscles moving but take the impact strain off your Achillies
till the soreness goes away.

squats and romainian dead lifts would be better....

I'm not buying that you're 53.
You look like a 28 yr old!

I "squat" twice a day and I haven't seen a dead Romanian lately. :o

Seriously, is there a home remedy without weights? I can get to a gym but it is a 70 mile round trip. I have a few small dumbbells but no bar. I sold them when I moved to Korea, too heavy.:(

I stretch before and after but I would welcome your input. In the mean time, I'm going on Craigslist to search for a few dead Romanians.

romanian dead lifts are also known as a stiff leg dead lift.

Do squats with your body weight and then add the dumbells.

same for the stiff leg dead lifts
