Although I’m definitely not a long distance runner, I recently have had a flare up of my achilles tendon.
A local physio had a quick look at my gait and a feel of my hips and believed that it was because of a weakness in my Gluteus medius muscles. With a quick test/retest (hopping) after some Gluteal activation exercises there was definite improvement. Have a look at the side-lying clam exercise.
Again, look above and below as they say but this time a little bit further than the calves.
