I've come down with pretty painful tendonitis in my right foot. I haven't been running in a long time, which is how I got it many years go. Is it possible that this is from biking? Should I have been doing cool stretches before riding to leesburg?

Im RICEing. Rest immobilize cold elevate etc.

Thanks!

This thread (http://www.endurancecorner.com/library/injury_prevention_treatment/achilles_tendonitis) suggests that cycling can cause achilles tendonitis, and provides some suggestions. It appears more likely that shoes/pedals are the problem, rather than failing to stretch.

Seat height/position and cleat placement are big factors. I developed that problem once and solved it with a good fitting. No problems since.
