Feeling gutted. After my graduation and Parkrun on Saturday it all seems to have collapsed round my ears! Loved the Parkrun (and look I have my graduate badge!) but the calf injury I picked up in the process looks like it has set me right back. Saw a sports therapist today for ultrasound, massage and advice. Been advised not to try to run for a week, then to try walking and brisk walking intervals before moving on to gentle walking and light jogging intervals. Sounds to me like I need a week on the couch before I start again with something less strenuous than week 1. Darn it - I was right into this! Trying to stay positive because let's face it this, this is very minor in the greater scheme of things.....but after 9 weeks of hard graft it feels really weird not to be pulling my trainers on tonight. Lots of sympathy in the office today and everyone was very impressed when I explained the reason I was sporting the sexy tubigrip was due to a sports injury! Boo hoo - I want to run NOW!
