Today, for the first time this year, I haven't iced my achilles after being on the bike for 45 mins. Also went for a 6 mile run today on quite a hilly route - legs felt a bit heavy, especially my achilles, but overall my rehab seems to be going well.
Found two very good race reports on Multidays.com about the annual Self Transcendence 6 day race over in America. Very good reading ... especially the part about shin splints and cabbages !!!.
