How to heal an inflamed strained tendon in 7 easy steps:

Step 1)  Strain your tendon running.
Step 2) REST the foot.  Rest the foot while running errands, watching kids, cooking, cleaning, and packing.  Then go to BDA and swim, snorkel, and walk walk and walk some more.
Step 3) Rest the foot.   This time for a whopping 2 days.
Step 4) Run with your mates on a Sunday morning.  When all your running mates head out for their last 6, go ahead and turn around.  About 1/2 mile from the end of your run, ignore the fact that your foot suddenly explodes in pain.  Just keep running.  You don't need to stop.  The stars floating in your vision are perfectly normal.
Step 5) Medicate yourself with copious amounts of champagne and Motrin.  
Step 6) Actually rest your foot for 1 whole day.  Sit in a car with your foot propped on the dash under an ice pack while medicated with more Motrin.
Step 7) Run 3 miles with a screaming child attempting to climb out of the stroller.  It's advisable to sprint the last mile, because she has nearly released the buckle....
