Felt pretty good today, despite lots of stress and poor sleep lately

felt light and springy on my feet today, especially  compared to last week.
tendons felt good.
It looks like I have reached the threshold bodyweight that my muscles/tendons can comfortably handle.
Things will only get better from here on down, as I'll be getting much lighter

Feeling pretty decent, no major DOMs, and not all that beat up.

Achilles feeling good after yesterday.
The inner parts of the heel still hurt went pressed, but getting out of bed and walking upon waking has improved dramaticly the last week or so.
Still some ache there from the lower plantaris tendon area



total rest day
