Hello Dear Running Folk,
Some of you may know that I hurt my right calf a couple of days ago. One delicious contributor said that I may have torn my gastronemius muscle (how the hell do you spell that??). It certainly felt very tender to the touch, but I did this ;
1. Strapped an ice pack to my leg for twenty mins TWICE a day.
2. Wore a compression sock (verrrrry tight) for a few hours.
3. Foam rollered the area gently a few times until I could bear it.
Two days later (TODAY), I walked 4K into Richmond and back (slowly and leisurely) to buy a new toothbrush. Didn't have a single twinge!
As a result of this, I am thinking about a run tomorrow. Good idea or am I being too impatiently enthusiastic?
Can I have healed in just 2 days?
I await your thoughts with baited breath!
