I wanted to write a quick update on the status of my recovering. I expect a few of you are still following along on my journey and some of you have stumbled on this post through Google. For those catching up, I tore my Achilles tendon playing racquetball back on June 26, 2014. It's now September 2nd and I wanted to give an update but also exorcise some of the demons within.
I'm writing this for all the people who will stumble upon it after they rupture or tear their Achilles. Hopefully, this will be of help to you. Here's some background: I'm 43 years old, a runner and in good shape. Back on June 26, 2014, I tore my Achilles in my left leg playing racquetball with my wife. My family and I were on vacation so I went to urgent care the next day, found out the injury wasn't a break from an x-ray, and was wrapped up and given crutches.
