Does anyone here have sore achilles the day after hard rides? If so, do you know what causes it, and what do you do about it? Thanks

since tendonitis is essentially an inflammation problem resulting from overuse it usually doesn't show up immediately. Usually felt the next day, may be worse in the morning and get better as you get up and move around? Might even feel O.K. while exercising once you get warmed up. I would recommend the ol' standbys of decreased activity, ice, and NSAIDS.

Thanks, I'll try to give that a go. Is there anything that I can do to prevent it?
