My Achilles was feeling pretty good after a few easy days, but I kept to my plan of an entire week of taking it easy. However, despite this, it’s actually gotten noticeably worse over the past two days. I don’t quite understand how issues with my right heel simply don’t seem to respond to rest. I can only surmise that during the resting process additional scar tissue starts to build up, leading to pain. Hopefully it will eventually get better once adequate scar tissue is created.

Below is a classic photo from Monument Valley during my run around the world. Yes, I’m out there somewhere near the mesa on the left, but I’m too small to be seen in this photo. It was just beyond these mesas where I dressed up as Forrest Gump. You can surely appreciate from this shot why I loved running in the region.
