During these extra-ordinary times many of us have taken the opportunity to improve our fitness during lock-down.
Whether it is walking, running or an activity inside the house sudden increases in training load can result in tendon discomfort and affect our enjoyment of these activities.
In gait based activities the achilles tendon is often a driver of discomfort and can make us fearful and anxious about continuing exercise.
The good news is that despite achilles discomfort being experienced a level of training can usually continue and often will contribute to a stronger and less painful tendon.
