I, too, am an avid cyclist. For the past year I've built up my riding so that I could do a 100 mile ride without any troubles - and, in fact, have ridden at least 1 "century ride" every month of the year. Three weeks ago I embarked on a 1300km+ ride - 7 days averaging about 120miles/day. At the end of day 5 I started to experience pain in my left achiles tendon. I couldn't ride the last 2 days. I've taken the last 3 weeks off and went to ride this morning, and with only 3 miles in, had to turn around as I could feel "something" in that tendon again. No pain yet, but I could tell it was developing. Any suggestions??
