I haven't posted on here for some time. Graduated a good while ago and then embarked on a 10k programme. I am sidelined yet again due to a calf tear, albeit a grade 1. I'm having physio, icing, stretching and resting as much as possible but every time I think I'm ok, I go out for a gentle run and 'ping', it'll happen again or the other calf will go. I was very much enjoying my running and all the benefits that go with it, but now feel that my fitness will lapse and the weight will pile on again. I suppose this will read like a very negative post, but I've got to be honest, that's how I'm feeling. ive worked very hard to achieve what I've achieved to date (like you all), and now just feel like all the hard work and progress is slipping away and there's nothing I can do about it. Anyway, moaning over. Hope you all have a great new year and happy running for 2015.
