to Alan re: achilles tendon stiffness

Alan, thank you. This stiffness was just starting to register in my brain and beginning to worry me. I just tried the technique you posted, and it worked well -- did what you said it would.
Do you have any opinion as to why this stiffness would develop? I never had it before. I wonder if it's a result of rest, or trying to walk too much too soon.
To tell you the truth, for the last few days I've been afraid to do calf stretching at all -- because I feel it in that stiff area and wonder if I'm damaging it. Do you think that non-weight-bearing calf stretches would be better than weight-bearing, given this stiffness?
Thanks. --Nancy
