Sports massage. Ow ow ow

Finally succumbed to sported massage this evening. My right calf muscle keeps being silly so away I went. I thought a foam roller was painfull.!!!! I'm sure it was worth it , apparently my calf muscle is like bubble wrap. Full off scar tissue and needs strengthening. Onwards and upwards. Gentle running and walking for me for a while. Andy

  • I feel your pain Samson ! I nearly left gouge marks on the massage couch when I had mine ! Ha ha !

    Hope it does the trick and youre back to full strength very soon !

  • I was worried about my other leg flying through the air and knocking out the physio. Back next week for more. I will not stop running , its just sooooo much fun. Tee hee. X.

  • Ha ha ! :-D xxx

  • I need to do this. Really tight calves from wearing heels (I refuse to stop wearing heels) Ask my hubby to give them a rub the other night, nearly jumped through the roof! God knows how painful a proper sports massage will be!?

  • I feel your pain Samson. I had one on Wednesday and I now have lots of lovely bruises! But they work wonders methinks so they're worth it. Be brave!

  • hi

    i did my calf at parkrun yesterday and had to stop!

    Physio booked fortomorrow!!


  • I hope it works for you. My calf hurt like hell for a couple of days but I managed a gentle 5k this morning. Lots of seated calf raises, ice and heat ease the discomfort now. Back for another bout next Thursday. Good luck and hope your back running soon.
