Achilles tendons (sore)

Postby lesz42 » Tue Jul 31, 2012 22:46 pm

just typical!

got 2 weeks off from saturday (4th) fair bit of riding planned but

but past few days my Achilles tendons have been sore, discomfort after a few hours of walking/ shop work

so, rest and ICE when i can, and just ignore the pain, and ride every other day or?

think i got this from riding my road bike, which has flat pedals :oops: :roll: ( long story)

flats on the mtb, i feel i have more of a stable platform on the mtb

what to do? :cry:

I'd suggest rubbing a hot or cold creme like sombra on your calfs. It's great for muscle soreness. Lactic acid is likely building up in those muslces and sombra stimulates blood flow in the area, allowing the lactic acid to disappate.
