Well it is official now, my season is over already. Thursday, 8/28 I had achilles tendon surgery (Topaz) done by DR Asherman at Orthopedics Associates. My achilles has been bothering me for nearly 2 years so hopefully this will help so that I can run pain free. The surgery was very routine and everything is healing as it should. I have a giant foot splint that I have to wear all of the time. I should be able to swim after about 4 weeks and may start running after 8 weeks. There is no rush to get back at it since this is normally the time of year I am taking some down time.
