    Skipping legs altogether. Not happy. But the tendon is better.

    I haven't checked in a while Brother, but sorry to hear about the injury. Hope you heal up quick. I also just realized that this thread is 9 years old today. Happy Anniversary!

    Skipped legs again yesterday. Monday I did a lot of walking at stores. Bad. Bad. Achilles tendinitis was really swollen. Yesterday I rested it a lot and it’s better but this will take time. Still have an odd bump on it. Google it and it looks just like it. Been icing, anti-inflamitories, turmeric. Takes time.

    Wow. 9 years. Thanks for the well wishes. It’s a bummer and I was using the same weight on seated calves and very light weight on the leg sled calf presses. I really don’t get it.

    Thanks John. Soft tissue just takes so long. The Snapping Hip is much better but I still need to relax it by foam roller. I that may be part of my health maintenance, like rotator cuff exercises, for the rest of my life.

    After a complete day off, including walking with a gimpy, slew foot where I tried not to have ANY left calf movement, my Achilles’ tendon is back to better. At least it doesn’t hurt while not doing anything. Still has a bump. The bump is where part of the fibers that are torn gather. It doesn’t help when my daughter says I’m old and the wife says I should do low-impact exercise like the pool. Anyway I’ll continue ice therapy as well as anti-inflammatory and turmeric. Also, I’ll continue to walk with a stiff leg and try not to move the foot. Ug

    OK. Something weird is going on with me. Although I had to walk a lot yesterday I tried not to use the valves much but yesterday everything my right (other) Achilles’ tendon was sore. And it had a small bump on it. Which means I tore some of the fibers and have tendinitis. This is a HUGE bummer. Now my small calves will atrophy and become even more smaller.

    What’d I do wrong? Dunno. Nothing I can tell.

    Well, well. Funny how things work and premonitions come true.

    Our 17- year old cat has dementia and we had some ’strange’ men (carpenters) inside. The cat went wild and viciously attacked me - lots of bites. I can’t use it and very painful. Got antibiotics and a tetanus shot.

    Well, It's been a week and a half. The cat bite is better. In fact, only the 3 fang marks do I actually feel - mostly the scab. The tendon will be taking much more time as expected; however it is noticeably improved. I'm thinking I may start back Wednesday, which will be a full 2 weeks. there are 2 schools of thought with tendon, especially Achilles's Tendonitis.
    1) Rest and do cross-friction massaging
    2) Do active, but slow exercises and light stretching

    #1 is thought by the newer camp (#2) that the cross-friction causes more inflammation while method #2 encourages the tendon to heal doing what it naturally does, although with significant less weight or force during a stretch. I lean more toward #2 and have stopped the cross-friction. Although I haven't done any significant contracting (yet). The calves, especially the left, which I broke about 10 years ago has never felt right and I feel the area where it broke (near the ankle). I'm massaging the calf to relax it, elevate a lot, and only light stretch where it gets tight. Most walking, I walk with a limp, favoring the left calf and trying not to put but about 30 lbs on the calf at most. It is better.

    Update on injuries:

    The cat bite is almost completely healed. I can exercise with it like it is. The only real issue is the 3 fang bites in the meaty area of my thumb muscle. 2 still have a hard scab over the top. The scabs on the top of the hand are gone. The thumb bone feels weird, like it has some rough spots. This is where her upper teeth (broken) rubbed across the top of the hand and ripped open that area. I have full range of motion.

    The Achilles tendinitis is better. The swelling or bump may never go down, according to others. The main problem was the Soleus was tight. This also caused some plantar fasciitis. The problem now, mostly, is I have an extreme shortened range of motion. In fact I can stand next to a wall with my toes touching the wall and can’t touch my knee to the wall without the heel coming up. That’s tight.

    I plan on starting back to workouts Wednesday. Leg workouts will be very light and calf work will be baby weights if any.

    Light Legs

    12, 12 x 115 Seated Leg Curls

    14,14,14,14 x 90 45-degree leg press

    10 x 90 sled calf. Only 1 set, light and not a lot of stretching. About 60% effort with right calf and 40 left

    NO Seated Calf as the soleus is the calf muscle that was so tight

    10,9 x 140 Leg extensions (was 170)

    Now to see if better or worse. Sigh

    Wow Brother! You have had quite a few weeks. Hope all is going well. I'm still training, but it is everything I can do to fit it in. I keep thinking life will slow down, but it seems to keep ramping up even more.

    Friday September 25, 2020 - Back and Biceps

    Slept 4.5+3=7.5 Hours.

    Return to workouts. Somewhat light on most exercises. As with legs they will be light for quite a while, especially calves. The Achilles is better. The shortened range of motion is the most concerning now. I walked around a mall yesterday. No issues.


    All sets have 2 seconds peak contraction with 3 second cadence

    Took 1/2 scoop of pre-workout although I thought I probably didn’t need it using lighter weights. But it helped a lot and put me in a good mood. Maybe that combined with working out again. Woo!

    Thanks John. Everyday I can see a little improvement with the Achilles tendinitis.

    Busy cause of business or just other things? Happy that you’re still getting in some workouts.
