This article recounts the experience of a 50 year-old man attempting to treat his refractory mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy (AT) pain and discovered by accident that training on a heavy bag after running eliminates the pain within one hour. There are currently no known exercise interventions which rapidly relieve mid-portion AT pain. Details are discussed.
