Feeling a little despondent today. Went for my first run since injury yesterday and ten mins into run my calf tightened and I felt that tender pain in calf so I stopped and walked rest of the way home thinking here we go again. Rang docs and asked if there was a GP that specialized in sports injury and of course nope and was offered an appointment next Wednesday ..... told not an emergency so tough basically.
Today the calf is feeling ok, a little tender, but not painful so I think I probably stopped just in time. Looked on net and seems it takes 6-8 weeks sometimes longer to get back so looks like I may have to sit it out. I am going to buy a foam roller and try that to help keep the muscle supple.
So here I am scuppered and in dry dock, big booooooo!
