I've been recovering from an achilles tendon injury for the past 7 months. What made it tough was as soon as I got my injury, I went off to college and had to walk around 5 miles a day to get around and to get to classes from my dorm, which was putting a lot of stress on the injury that shouldn't have been there. After a few months my achilles adjusted to this stress and i was able to walk around campus everyday (with significant pain still but finally without limping). I then started doing eccentric calf raises for a few weeks but those made it much worse again and only set me back so basically I just kept increasing my walking and got more comfortable walking, stretching, and occasionally self-massaging very lightly. Two weeks ago I started running again at a very slow pace. I go at 8:30 pace and i started off at 1 mile, and now I'm up to two miles a day (I've taken two days off per week). My achilles still hurts just as much now as it did when i was just walking. Should I stay at 2 miles a day until my achilles doesn't hurt as much, or should I increase to 3 miles a day next week to let it adjust to that (adjust as in let pain subside to my current pain level), and then increase again? For more info, my first few steps in the morning feel tight but aren't painful anymore, it's about after 50 steps that i start to feel it every day.
