achilles pain with running

I have been training for my first tri and about 4 weeks ago I ran 15 miles for the first time after regularly running 13.5 at least once a week and since then have pain in my achilles with gentle running. The pain is during the run and soreness after. I did not run for 2 weeks, however the pain still persists with running. My event is in 5 weeks and I do not want to stop running now if avoidable. Any recommendations?
