       Suffering from a moderate bout of achillie tendonitis (Acute from Volleyball night on 9/8) - So mileage will be down again this week.  It usually takes 4-6 weeks of no speed, soft surface running and treating achillies before it goes away.  Timing is horrible - But when is it ever good?

        DB - bummer about the achilles.  I hope you heal up quickly.  What is the next race you have scheduled?

                  Thanks - I usually only get once every couple of years - Not chronic, but because of something silly I do (Like a runner playing intense Volleyball for 2 hours).  Since it is acute, I usually can get to a fully receovered state in 6 weeks while I run slow on soft surfaces.  I hope that is the case this time.
