Any tips for preventing calf muscle injuries?
I thought I was stretching and warming up enough. First time was 16 days ago, I felt a pop and had to get my hubbie to come and get me. Iced and rested for 12 days, then last Thursday, 4 days ago, I set out for a gentle run. Made sure I stretched and then walked for 5 mins, 4.5 mins into my first run I felt it go again. This time not as bad as I managed to hobble home.
Am I just being impatient? I've been plagued with niggles, first my knee and then my shins.
I struggle with not being able to get out and run, I've been on week5 for months now 🙁
