Sore Achilles due to a bad experience with running shoes. Continued to run with the right shoes before it was healed and aggravated it. The only thing that has helped much has been just taking time off from running. Wrapping a heat pad around the shoe area also seems helpful, plus I have done some stretching exercises. Nothing was effective without stopping running however.
