You are correct ….listen to your body. With your activity you warm up the tendon. With rest it stiffens from injury. But the injury, presently is small enough to heal before next activity. I recommend a stretching and strengthening program. This is a warning if you do nothing. Achilles’ tendons have very poor circulation. You should stretch and ice after activity.
