Testing the Waters

At Home - Mile 0 - Mar 18th, 2019

So after my achilles acted up again after a 3.5 mile easy hike, I rested it again and finally got back to mornings where it wasn't stiff. So I'm easing back into very careful gentle stretching, and tested it with a really short walk over the weekend which went fine. Today I walked about 1.5 miles, slow and steady, with some new gel heel inserts "just in case" and that went pretty well.
Got myself a tent which wasn't really planned, but after enjoying window shopping and deciding what I liked and finding it marked down by $100 I decided it would be great to have my own nylon house. It should help to keep our stuff dry in the rain and just give us each a bit more room to stretch out.
So yep for now am just easing back into walking and keeping my heel stretched and taking care not to screw it up!
