Loss of Elasticity (spring) in my Achilles?
 
It seems like when I run and do double unders my feet are feeling too heavy. I get almost no bounce in my step or jump. I watch the other athletes on these movements and they seem to get more recoil from their feet. I realize this sounds like old guy paranoia. :) But I want to do what I can to fix it, if anything.

I am 50, 6'1" at 174 lb's. Been crossfitting 2 years.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Are you saying you have notice a decline in "bounce" recently?

Without any other info, I would suggest rolling out your entire calf and Achilles area, as well as the fascia of your feet. You could some tendonitis/tendonosis going on that may be able to be worked out.

Yeah, I will try and do that more.

Funny thing is, I had PT work on me a little while ago. He actually did some dry needling on me which did help the pain in my left ankle.

Then I did a WOD with a bunch of double unders in it and it went back to feeling that same. :)

(Lol! Sucks getting old.)

I'll keep working on it. I have managed to get through some other issues like knee pain and shoulder issues. I just need to find the right mobility formula.
