Been gentle on my leg for about 3 weeks now but still very painful. Went to GP last Monday and he told to keep off it. He told me not to take Ibuprofen because it delays healing. He also told me I'm not young any more and will take longer to heal. Bless him.
This morning I was sitting on my wheely seat happily weeding the strawberry beds, got up to fetch the pruning shears and tripped on the edge of the raised bed. Fell headlong, ended up flat on my back on top of a lot of pots and really strained the tendon all over again. Rang 111 just for advice and they told me to go to A&E. After much prodding and poking they know that it isn't torn. But boy, does it hurt!
So - home again this time with crutches and have to keep off it for even longer now. Like I was told - it's back to the beginning again resting and icing regularly. Doh!
Who'd have thought I would ever miss running like this? It won't last for ever I suppose.
HAPPY RUNNING EVERYONE! Take good care of yourselves out there!
