RE: Achilles Tendonitis Question for the Experts

So Ive had another bout of achilles tendonitis recently and im just not so sure what to do right now. The injury is def getting better as Ive taken some time off running. I dont feel pain while walking and Ive done a couple really short test runs (like 3x: 50 meters down, walk back) and there are no issues.

Every now and then I've had some stiffness in the morning when I wake. It always hurts when I grab/pinch it and that is what I'm worried about. Should I start running 10-15 a day and keep going even if it hurts to pinch, or should I keep going as long as it doesnt hurt to run/walk?

This past week has been my first experience with Achilles issues. Had a pinching sensation in my Achilles last weekend on an easy run. I finished the run just thinking it was my calf tightening up but realized after it wasn't. The next two days could feel it walking and on stairs. After that, I could feel it commuting to work on my bike but nothing painful.

At what point should I attempt another easy run? Should all sensations in that area be completely gone or is it ok to start again but be cautious?

I had actually just signed up for my first marathon in May the day before these symptoms started so a little frustrating but want to make sure I'm good before training again
